CT SS QAL Week 2 Blocks

If it looks like there are some pumpkin, butterscotch and apricot-ish blocks... that's okay.  Use the Yellow and Golds that you like, that fit in with your colors. 

Our sweet friends at Martingale put together another slide-show of the blocks - in Yellow!

We're also sharing a second setting option this week - On Point With Sashing.

CT SS QAL Week 2 On Point With Sashing

Using 61 blocks, this quilt will finish at 70" x 70".  

The instructions can be found here - Sampler Spree Diagonal Setting With Sashing.

The other thing to share this week are blocks by the friends we invited to quilt-along with us.

CT SS QAL Week 2 Blocks - Kristine 1

Kristine is using a mix of Basic Grey pieces from Cider and Persimmon, a bit of Fig Tree, and mixed backgrounds.  She's decided not to sew entirely by color because she's making a smaller quilt.

She did make a few blue blocks.  

Hildy is using her Bonnie & Camille collection for her blocks, and she's mixing up the colors each week.

Greg!  He's sharing one block each day.  (Even though we think he's already finished all of them... lol)

One last thing... our sweet Jan Patek is adding an applique block to each week of her Sampler Spree blocks.  You can find the Week 2 pattern here - Bird On A Branch block..

That's it for this week!
