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.


  1. Stunning, such a beautiful colour palette.

  2. I love the colours you have used so far. I hadn't seen the pyramid blocks before.

  3. What a lovely quilt you are creating Julie! One of my all-time favourite blocks is the feathered star. (Thanks for the link). The colour palette reminds me of sailing on a summer's day. Go away winter!

  4. Your blocks are gorgeous - and are going to be stunning when all put together.

  5. Beautiful blocks! Lovely color choices!

  6. Your feathered star is just lovely... has been on my to-do list for quite some time now. As you know, I'm a big samplers quilt fan. Looking forward to seeing this come together!
