Sea Glass Beach Sampler Quilt Progress
Thought I'd show some progress shots of my Sea Glass Beach sampler quilt that I am doing with my sewing friends.
Last sewing day it was my turn to choose a block , I picked a block called 'Another Star" - tutorial from here.
Recently I came across this sampler quilt sew along and have decided to amalgamate some of the blocks into my quilt. I already had the Raspberry Kiss blocks, just not as many as they have made, and I thought for my first block I would try the feathered star. I love how this has turned out. I used a Cotton and Steel print for the middle and endpoints, and the various co-ordinating solids. The pattern is paper pieced and available from here. Some Spinning Pyramid blocks have been made too - I made two of block 1 and one of block 4, using fabrics for Anna Maria Horner and V & Co. I would like to attempt the Scandi Windmill block they are doing too - however picking fabrics and sewing those curves is some what off putting. There are some great blocks being made by other sewers participating in the sew along.
To make it a little more interesting to we have decided to make each each member of the group a block in their colour palette also.
On the whole I think I am keeping to my colour palette, definitely a bit of summer sky blue creeping in now.
