SPLENDID SAMPLER CATCH UP ... Blocks 13-18 & bonus...

I managed to have a good day sewing on Wednesday.
My neighbour came over and we got her large quilt basted for hand quilting.
We started it a while ago and there wasn't enough batting. She finally got some more to match and we had time to finish basting.

LOOK AT HER QUILT HERE

Then I kept sewing my Splendid Sampler blocks as she sewed the edges down to prevent fraying...
I continued with my Splendid Sampler blocks on Friday and did the block 18 on Saturday.
I was supposed to go to the quilt show but I woke with a migraine so I took it easy and also prepared for a class I am doing on Sunday.


My SPLENDID SAMPLER BLOCKS.
I have caught up.. Yippee.
I am using any scraps I can. These oriental fabrics are from a friend that has just finished a lovely bow tie quilt...
Block 13....... Splendid Sampler

It was playing nicely in blogger.

Look at all these pieces to make block 17.
