Bee Sampler Blocks

In anticipation of our bright sampler quilt at Bee Blessed I've been having fun trying out a few blocks -

This is an upscaled version of the Streak of Lightning block from the Farmer's Wife sampler.

This one is one of the In Colour Order Blocks of the Month - tutorial is spot on, but I opted to try the alternative method of making HSTs and it resulted in lots of bias edges which mean that this block looks lovely but it changes size every time I measure it!

And this one was just me having a play with my teeny Soul Blossom leftovers.

And, just to let you see my finished Welcome Wallhanging from class, here's a couple of pic -

Close up of my fimo buttons - made 'em myself!

just need to invest in a decent hanger for it and get it on the wall permanently.


  1. I love all of your bright blocks and congrats on the beautiful runner-- hang it proudly!

  2. lovely blocks Sarah, especially the one that was a play with the Soul Blossom leftovers

  3. The blocks are lovely but your Welcome is fabulous. I love the colours!

  4. ooh! lovely fabrics and colours xx

  5. I love the fimo buttons, as well as the welcome wall hanging and your blocks!

  6. Your blocks are great. Your welcome banner looks lovely and uses your scraps to best effect. Di xo

  7. Your sampler blocks would make a beautiful quilt in their own right! Maybe I should just put all your blocks into the quilt! At least then they'll all match! LOL!

  8. love your wallhanging, it looks great
