    Last year I purchased the Web Sampler Celebration blocks through the 12 participating websites. The fabric range was in Vicksburg - I loved the Civil War fabric and couldnt resist - anyway I have finished 6 of the blocks and thought I would share my progress.

    Those are great blocks!

    I have the same fabric collection and I like the darker colors and subtle patterns.

    Oh I can't wait to see this all set into your finished quilt top. Those fabrics are really something special. I love love the colors and the patterns in the fabric. Lucky you to have gone for it and got the blocks while you could. It looks like it is going to just sparkle when it is finished. Hurry hurry and finish.... LOL!

    They are going to be set on point with a pale beige background, I have the stripy fabric to make a vertical border in between and at the top and bottom I am doing a flying geese border...it was a finishing kit from thequiltmerchant.com - If you visit websamplercelebration.com you can see all the 12 blocks and if you click on the Block 9 you will see the finishing kit I purchased.
