More Sampler Quilt Blocks

image

As I am continuing reorganizing the closet and the studio I dig deeper and deeper.

I found several more sampler blocks. When I taught a class I usually ended up with several examples of each block. My favorite (and my students favorite) teaching method was generally lecture demonstration.

Occasionally I was able to demonstrate only 1/4 of a block so you can see some partial blocks in the picture. If I taught the class 4 times I’d have a completed block.

I do not intend to put these all in the same quilt or wall hanging. Right now I have no idea what I’m going to be doing with them. Seeing them hanging on the design wall will let me analyze them and decide how I will resolve this.

Cut them into strips and put them together randomly in Rayna Gilman's style! That would resolve the color problems.

Kay, when I saw all your lovely orphan blocks it reminded me of a chapter in a new book I got...Rayna Gillman's "Free Form Quilts". She takes a block or set of blocks, cuts them up and reassembles them with a suitable fabric, p. 78 features the quilt you can see here:

Looks like a lot of fun to make!

Those blocks are too PERFECTLY done to cut up and do Rayna's technique!
I have others that I'd consider cutting - but probably would never make it high enough on the priority list!
