My turn on The Canadian Sampler

2017 September 1

Hi! I’m popping in to let you know that my block is out this month (September already!) in the Canadian Sampler, a block of the month from my sponsor, Sew Sisters Quilt Shop.

I went through lots of scraps creating this block, and my final test ended up being in Cotton and Steel Mustangs. It was my first time fussy cutting a block and I love how the horses gallop in a circle! (Don’t mind the strange-looking bent horses at the sides, lol!) I also made the final “proper” red and white one to send to Sew Sister’s with the pattern, and it’s great how different they look next to each other. I can’t wait to see what everyone else will do with it.

We are almost at the end of the sampler and mine is coming along, slowly but surely. I’ve got 8 out of 20 blocks finished and 3 more cut and ready to sew. This might not seem like an accomplishment – especially when I now have patterns for 18 blocks… but it’s my first sampler and I’m thrilled! I wrote about the first two blocks and you can see the other’s I’ve made so far on Instagram. Oh, and there’s more in my intro post from last year as well – including links to all of the designers.

Sew Sisters has written a bit about each designer on their blog, so you can find more about this month’s block designers there as well. I’ve enjoyed learning the history and reason for each block design, as well as sewing them up!

If you are in North America, I hope you enjoy the upcoming long weekend!

See you again soon,
