Apologies in advanced for my super photo heavy post! So last week I talked about how I was debating starting the City Sampler. Well I started it....in a big way! I started on Monday and have been doing about 12 blocks a day! They are so addictive! I've organized them into sets of 3 because the Sew along does 3 blocks a week. Im now caught up to where the sew along is on block 66.
Blocks 1, 2, and 3. I love the 3rd block! I've decided I want to fit all 3 of what Im calling the Parisville ladies into the quilt. This is the Ship lady.
Blocks 4, 5, 6. My husband loves the 4th block with the bee.
Blocks 7, 8, and 9.
Blocks 10, 11, 12.
Blocks 13, 14, 15.
Blocks 16, 17, 18.
Blocks 19, 20, 21
Blocks 22, 23, 24 I love blocks 22 and 23! Did I mention I have a bit of a fussy cutting addiction now?
Blocks 25, 26, 27.
Blocks 28, 29, and 30
Blocks 31, 32, 33. I love my Octopus! I am mildly concerned about this orange. It seems to bright?
Blocks 34, 35, 36. The second Parisville lady with cougar. One more to go!
Blocks 37, 38, 39. I originally didn't like the space dust fabric but I really do love block 39!
Block 40, 41, 42. I love the Plum blocks and another octopus and sea horse! I also love block 42 with the seagull because it looks like he's just ridding the waves!
Blocks 43, 44, 45.
Blocks 46, 47, 48. I love the fussy cut potion bottles! I use those again later on!
Blocks 49, 50, 51. Block 50 looks like a huge pain that will take forever but I wasn't. You just need to get in there and get it done and not get freaked out!
Blocks 52, 53, 54. I've had mixed feelings about 53....I don't know if I should have fussy cut both pieces.
Blocks 55, 56, 57 I did block 55 slightly different than the book. Instead of making 9 half square triangles I did 3 and then but the other 3 as 4 1/2" by 2 1/2" and then did the triangles on each side so I wouldn't have the seam down the middle.
Blocks 58, 59, 60
Blocks 61, 62, 63.
Blocks 64, 65, 66. Fussy cut bottles again. I love the color combo of the middle block!
I've been thinking that this quilt would be an excellent I spy quilt!
That's all for now! I'll let you know when I have more!
