City Sampling

The City Sampler classes at Little General have passed the halfway point…51 blocks complete! And the new crew is just getting started at Sew Original! Everyone is doing such a great job. It’s amazing how different these blocks look with different fabric choices!! Lori & Patti are all caught up. They’re making two sets that are similar so they just showed off one set. They’re using a great selection of Tula fabric!

Joan is still rocking her rainbow of color. Each block is such a little gem!

Sarah showed a sampling of her blocks. Her fussy cuts are fabulous! She’s doing a bit of catch up, but is well on her way.

Debbie’s pink, black and grey blocks are lovely. She added some new fabrics. Gorgeous!

And The Guru’s! She did a great job with contrast so you can really see the design.

Theresa hit it out if the park as usual. Her color choices are impeccable!! She also added a few new fabrics.

Gail’s version is so bright and fun!! She used lots of navy this month because she hadn’t been using it much. Once these blocks are spread throughout the quilt, the navy will be a nice touch!

Tomoe’s black and white version is simply amazing. I’m constantly impressed that she finds enough contrast. But she does!!

Sue also started her sashing! It really ties together her blocks. Love!!

Her cube block is great!

And the group at Sew Original got started with their first set if blocks! They now believe me that fabric selection and cutting is the time consuming part!! Here are Cydney’s! She’s doing a Anna Maria Horner heavy rainbow. Beautiful work!

And Jeannie! She gave each of her blocks a great name. She’s using lots of Acacia. Great job Jeannie!

Shirley is also using Acacia! Her blocks are wonderful!! It’s such a happy quilt!

And Denise! She’s doing a rainbow and using lots of Tula fabric. I love it! She’s waiting on some fabric to arrive for a few of her blocks!

And The Guru! Do I have the best Mom in the world or what?! She’s willing to make another Tula quilt so she can be my guinea pig. She’s calling this one “The Happiness Project” and using Sweetwater Wishes. They are happy!!

And mine! I’m using a Carolyn Friedlander print from Botanics for the main print with splashes of bright colors.

These blocks are so much fun! If you haven’t made one, you should!! And if you live in the Greensboro area, there’s going to be a new group starting soon at Studio Stitch! Details soon.

  1. I am excited to see how the second one of yours (third lol) ends up… I haven’t seen one with a single background before, so it will be unique…
