Good Morning Quilters!
Today’s subject is “Sampler Quilts”. As long as I have been quilting, I’ve been drawn to making little blocks - all different from each other. I started my quilt journey with the Jane Stickle Quilt, so I think that influenced me a lot. . And whenever an internet “free block patterns for such and such time of the whatever” is offered, I usually join in. But now, I’m resisting joining any new ones until I get some of these sampler blocks from my past years made into quilts.
The UFO that is on the design wall this week are blocks from Pat Sloan’s “Splendid Sampler” of a few years ago. I saw one or two quilt tops that I thought would be something I could do with these blocks, but I’m undecided. The truth is that I like making the blocks, but together in a quilt top, they are too busy looking. I have them in a possible setting with an Irish chain alternate block. And I put four together as I saw this on another person’s Splendid Sampler. I don’t know if it makes them look more busy or less busy this way.
I am also considering another setting, similar to one of these quilts that I saw on Pinterest.
