2015 Sampler Blanket

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 flickrgroup Scrappy Trip Along - Bee, next signups will be February 1st. The mail date is not until April 15th, so it give you plenty of time to make 5 bl…


My goal for July was to complete
(5) blocks for the
Scrappy Trip Along - Bee
I am happy to say I completed my goal!
After last month I thought I was dust.

Here they are for you to see!

The Hive Mates from Round 5 Hive 3
(4) United States,
(1) Great Britain,
and (1) Australia
all mailed on time!

How it works?
In August there will be a new signup for
Hive 6
Signups will be announced

The same tutorial is used each time
Quiltville's Quips & Snip! Scrappy Trip Around The World

All those who signup are
broken into groups
of 6 people called hives!

Each person has a preference that is shared with group.
(I like fun novelty prints & bright modern prints)
With the idea of what each hive mate wants to receive
you begin searching through you fabric stash!

No need to purchase any fabric use
what you already have!

While digging through my stash
I found all sorts of fabrics to use
for the round but also ones
I forgot where hiding inside those plastic tubs.

It inspired me to pull stash for a new project
