Splendid Sampler

Well we are on block 9 as of today. I have just finished block 8 and will tackle # 9 on Monday.
Here are the last few that I have finished. Cute little blocks that should make up a nice quilt with many different techniques.

Here is a little grouping of the blocks sew far. I do have doubles of some but I only put one of each in the picture.
Other than working on these little guys I have done some quilting for a friend. This is a lovely quilt with some great maple leaves on it. I chose to quilt the red leaves and centers with read thread as I did not want to take away from the showiness of  the quilt. I used a ruler technique to quilt stars in the red centers.

Sew there's what I have been up to this past week. I am sew happy to be able to get back to my stitching.
Have a great week and stay
