    I hope to encourage everyone to post pictures here of their work on the Second Sampler Quilt Along.

    I would love love to see progress pics as well as finished quilt block pics.

    I don't make big quilts so please if anyone has ideas for putting these quilt blocks into quilts add your thoughts here!!!

    Any helpful advice or suggestions are more than welcome!!

    Rhonda one of the ladies in our First Saturday group makes sampler baby quilts all the time and I think they turn out wonderful.

    I'd love to say 'I'm in' but the idea of committing to just one more thing about freaks me out! LOL I'll be enjoying looking at all of the blocks and am sure I'll have to make a few myself. Thanks for putting this together, Rhonda!

    Here are my blocks for week #1. I did "Ashley" in 2 sizes. The smaller one was a test run (and will probably get a border and be made into a pillow), I've decided to go with the larger size to make a bed quilt. Thanks for looking!

    OK, didn't know it was up and running yet. Is this going to be for all the blocks I hope, that way we won't miss any.
    This is a 6 1/2".

    Here is my Ashley block and here is my plan(you know about best laid plans). The floral fabric has purple, pink, green, brown and yellow. I am going to use that fabric and maybe the polkadot in all the blocks and mix up the accent colors. They will be 18 inch blocks so maybe I will get a quilt sooner rather than later.

    Nice job and pretty colors. I can't wait to see about 10 weeks down the road what everyones blocks are going to turn out to be.

    Here is my block for week#2 - "Autumn." I am really pleased with how this block turned out, except for my complete inability to get the points in the very middle to match up. My seam ripper was getting quite the workout. Finally, I just had to drink a beer and get over it! ;-) Isn't that how everyone quilts??? :oops:

    I noticed that in Rhonda's pattern she used four different greens - that inspired me to make mine a little bit scrappy and I really like how that turned out.

    Thanks for looking!

    I love it! I just love seeing how everyone interprets my designs. I enjoy seeing all the color combinations! Your's turned out terrific! Your points turned out just fine!

    Very very nice. And you are quick. I haven't started mine yet, strips are cut, but I have a couple of charity blocks I need to do first. But I want to do mine before Friday. I recognize a lot of your fabric, do we shop the same place??

    Obsessed, don't feel so bad about your points. I had a time with mine also. If it hadn't been so early in the morning I would have had a glass of wine( I don't like beer). Here is mine. Looks like I cut off the top of the pic but you get the drift.

    Very nice, these are all turning out fabulous.
    I think I will start mine today. Wish me luck, I've never done a 6 1/2" star block.

    One trick to remember ladies is tack tack tack. If you stitch a stitch where the points meet they won't move. I hold the two points together and then fold back the tip of the corner so you can see if the points are meeting. If you tack them in place then you should save some frustration with the points.

    You can also tack where the bottom of the center fabric meets the other SP block.

    Also mine aren't always perfect so some imperfection is expected!! We aren't perfect!!

    Thanks Ladies - PokerDiva, I am really loving those polka dots - nice block! Your points look perfect to me. Jealous!

    Rhonda, I know you're right. I saw your advice on tacking before and I just didn't do it. Too rebellious! Tacking is one of those things that I think will take too long - and then I spend an hour trying to get those silly points straight! After a day or two away from the block, I may pick it up and take one more go at the center points - tacking them this time!

    Katie - good luck on the 6 1/2 block! You're my hero for undertaking that - not that it's hard - it's not - just a lot of fiddly little pieces to match up.

    Here's my Autumn, week # 2. ......this was a lot of fun and turned out better than I expected. Sure are little squares. I think my little sampler is going to be really cute, if I do say so myself. This is a 6 1/2".... boy the closeup shows all the mistakes. lol

    Looks good to me Katie! Star points and the smaller size might take a bit of practice to get it where you want it to be. But mine are quite often off so it is the nature of the beast sometimes!!

    Are those fabrics cotton? They almost look like flannel to me.
