    I started my sampler blocks!! I got a lot of great ideas from everyone. I decided to use blocks that tell my story! My MIL makes all of her blouses and she gave me a lot of leftover fabric, all florals, so I decided to use that. So she has a "part" in my quilt. Aunt Dinah is for my sister, who will eventually be an aunt :-) I picked Friends star because I am blessed with a lot of friends. This block is just a bit off from the pattern because I didn't print in color and couldn't quite tell which fabric went where, so my own version! Then Arizona because I live here. This block my DH actually likes, so that makes it even better!

    Some of the blocks I plan on using are the states we have been too. So enjoy and as I make more, I will post them!

    Here are the next 3 of my blocks!

    Wyoming - We go there to hunt and I went there the first time in 2009 and just loved it! The outer blocks are a pale yellow with some rose designs. Then some gold in the center and dark burgandy with some black and the "red" is more of a deep brick red.

    CA - My DH and I grew up in California and I chose the colors for this more specifically. The green reminds me of the redwoods that we lived by. We also lived on the coast, so the blue reminds me of the ocean. The sunflowers just seemed like CA, they also remind me of Dh mom.

    Memory - This fabric was the focus fabric of my very first quilt. I also love purple. So this is my block to remind me of how I started out quilting and also to remember all the memories I have from this quilt.

    I have several more blocks to go, but its fun to see these on my design wall and know why they are there!

    Wyoming - the colors are a bit off.
