March Saturday Sampler

It's that time again, another day of Saturday Sampler fun. We have the NICEST ladies that join us. . . one can't help but enjoy the day. We are always glad when the weather cooperates and our "out-of-towners" are able to make it on good roads.

We enjoyed viewing some of the completed sampler quilts from last year. They are wonderful and of course we forgot to get snapshots of the individual ladies and their quilts. We will try and do that next month and post the photos. Many talented quilters shared their projects. We thank each one!

This is the apron block for March. It is hard to see in the photo, but the pockets are dimensional. We needed a little 1930's red in our quilt, so the accent color does that job.

Our western quilt block is a hat. . . every cowboy has a few!!

Posted by PicasaThis is the pieced block we are featuring this month. And oops. . . .forgot to take a photo of the blue color way, that will be posted ASAP. These Saturdays that are "Sampler Days" are so much fun and such a delight to
visit with so many terrific ladies. . . sometimes it's easy to forgot the job!
Enjoy making your blocks and it isn't too late to join the fun and catch up if you missed the first two months. We are happy to mail blocks also. Happy stitching!
