2015 Sampler Blanket (Quilt) Block 1 January My friend Rie at Crafty Rie started this monthly get together. If you click on the blue link that says Crafty Rie you can read all about it. As you can see you can choose what you make and how you make it! My favorite way to work. I will be using Cotton+Steel Basics and Robert Kaufman Kona Solids on My Sampler Quilt. For January I decided to do one of my favorite blocks Scrappy Trip Around The World (Blue words are the link to pattern)! It is very simple and made out of 2 1/2 strips. You can make quite a beautiful quilt using these blocks but since this is a sampler blanket/quilt each month I will choose a different block with a link or directions on how to make it just in case you want to try a few new blocks! If you find you really like making Scrappy Trip Around The World blocks check out the flickr group Scrappy Trip Along - Bee , next signups will be February 1st. The mail date is not until April 15th, so it give you plenty of

I have spent a lot of time recently trying to decide what I will be doing over the next year. What will be the one word for 2015? Then I read about a Sampler Blanket or in my case a quilt over at CraftyRie and I think no rules just a hashtag #2015samplerblanket Create a quilt with my own rules a couple blocks a month. Rie says - You can knit, crochet, quilt, embroider the blocks.. or rectangles.. or hexagons.. or circles. You can join as you go or make them continuous or leave them in a pile and join them at the end. You can make a square every day or week or month or season.... I think I like the square a month idea myself. You can choose one colour or a multitude of colours. Any pattern. Any design. Any stitch. What do you think? Does this sound like fun to you? I think it will be fun why don't you join us! Hop on over to CraftyRie and link up with me! Project #1 - #2015samplerblanket Everyone doing their own thing but together! Sounds Unique which is right down my alley!
