More Blocks from the Splendid Sampler

Yep, the quilting bug has got me. Went to a regional quilters day with a friend yesterday - joined the group which has about six regional days a year and was therefore able to borrow from their library. Jumped into bed early last night so I could lose myself in the magazines and books.

Off to a dance competition later this afternoon where my daughter is doing a contemporary solo but in the meantime I have a little bit of time to post the recent blocks I have made from designs from The Splendid Sampler.

Block 10 : Iowa designed by Sherri McConnell

Block 11 : Crocheted Thoughts designed by Alyssa Thomas

Block 12 : Checkerboard designed by Pat Sloan

Block 13 : Scrap Star designed by Corey Yoder

Block 14 : Flying High designed by Janet Clare

Block 15 : Family Affair designed by Janice Ryan

Block 16 : Pieces of Friendship designed by Lindsay Mayland

Block 17 : Family Stars designed by Kimberly Jolly

This was a bonus block I did for Easter based on a design by Pat Sloan

This is a mug rug I made for my mother-in-law for her birthday. I got the tutorial from here:

I had better go and make a quick alteration to my daughter's dance costume and sort out what we are going to do with her hair as she has had it cut from very long to very very short so I can't chuck it in a bun like I would normally do. Hope you are all having a great weekend.
