SAMPLER BLOCKS FOR A QUILT...THE RESULT OF THE MONTH LONG FOCUS FOR MAKING BLOCKS HAD SOME SURPRISES!
I was thinking of making nothing but template cut-out type blocks and had things ready to go but
when it came to doing them I found myself using blocks that were cut or made such as the half triangle and 3" / 5" squares. I ended up looking for blocks that had those type of pieces in them and that did speed things up. My buckets of scraps did not deplete at all and I realized that the buckets need work to get things ready...like iron, sort by size/shape, and pre-cut the square sizes I use the most of along with strip cutting of different widths for all those wonderful string quilts to make. The other thing that happened was the search for blocks lead to potential over-all quilt designs.
