WIP Wednesday

This morning,  it was back to City Sampler blocks! 


I am up to 9 now; 91 to go! 


A few years back, I bought several 10 inch square sampler packs of solids from Connecting Threads. That is what I am using for these blocks.  


As I accumulate small scraps from cutting, I put them here so I can keep them handy for use in future blocks. 


I mark each block in the book as I finish with a note as to the colors I used. 

At this point, I am not concerning myself with how many of each color I make. I’m just having fun!

Linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday and Sew Fresh Quilts for Let’s Bee Sewcial.

    Comes a point in a sampler when I lay them out and see what I need to make next to balance it out, about 2/3 of the way through. I like the arrangement of cool/warm colors in your start.

  6. That is going to be stunning!

  7. It’s looking really great – love the bright colors.

    I love your blocks, Katy: there is a purity about using the clear solid colours. Keep on with this project, it’s going to be stunning.

    Ooh, I like this version of City Sampler with the solids! (And that tray is just right to keep those colorful scraps.)
