Friday Sampler

Every week I think to myself how I am going to get so many blocks made for my sampler quilt.  Yet, each week time goes by as I run here an there with my children and I don't seem to have any extra time to pursue my hobbies.  Here is a quick shot of what I was doing last Friday:

I was running along side her, trying to keep her going.  That only started my day and it was the calmest day of the week!

This week has been much better and yesterday afternoon I even had time to set down at my sewing machine.  Let me say we ended up having Papa Murphy's pizza for supper and that my 3 year old got covered in mud during that time and had to have a bath before the band concert last night.

I am finally getting into this craft blog again and I have posted more in the last 2 months than the previous 2 years, hopefully it's starting to look a little better.  My family blog has been lacking for a while.  Maybe now I can get it caught up too!

Well, that all being said here are the blocks I worked on yesterday.  I was so surprised that all of them came out to a perfect 6 1/2 inches!!!
I love this block, it is definitely one of my favorite patterns so far.  That could be because my corners were PERFECT!!!  

This is Joanie's Basket, Block #3, as you can see the basket handle is missing.  I haven't figured out yet what I will be doing here.  Applique or ribbon, I'll decide today.

I really love how the colors worked together on this block.  It's a great block to do when busy because it took about 5 minutes from start to finish.

Not quite sure about the colors for the bats wing...  I do really like the block and it was an easy block also.

I rotated the colors a little here and love the outcome.  Definitely a favorite!
This is a Block of the Month (BOM) for the Cotton shop here, they're an awesome store!!!  This doesn't look anything like the original block in their store because I (intentionally) flip flopped the triangle block, putting the colors backwards.
They have a fun blog and Hailey is going to their Kid's sewing camp this summer.

Hop on over to Ellie's to check out everyone's Friday blocks!!!
