60 down & a change of plans....

As the title says....  

This is an update on My Freemotion Quilting Sampler Quilt(ssss).

Now that I have completed the first 6 blocks I am rethinking the project.  Here are the first blocks laid out.

This measures 51" across and my new plan is to make it 3x3 which will finish 51" square and be perfect for the end of the beds at camp.  As the original layout of 10 fabrics stacked and cut = 10 fabrics per blocks/10 blocks, the orphan block will be made into a pillow!  

This is the current thought on using binding to connect the blocks and around the outside.

Once this quilt and pillow are complete it will be on to the next 100 of Leah Day's Freemotion Designs - just beginning to formulate my next project using 101-200!!

Visit my My Freemotion Quilting Sampler Quilt page for links to each block.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a quilty day!

Freemotion Sample Block #6!

Here's another block done for My Free Motion Sampler Quilt.
 First series: 6 blocks done, 3 to go (4 counting the pillow)
Block 6 -Front:
 and the Back:
 #55 Wheat in the Wind was my favorite on this block.

 #52 Spider Web took up residence in the center....

 Think I need to make something for Halloween so I can quilt it with this!  
Great design feature.

Here is a link to Leah Day's Freemotion Quilting project where you can find over 400 designs!
These are the 10 I used on this block.
 I'm very exciting that Leah is visiting New Hampshire this week to teach at the MQX show in Manchester AND I am taking her class on Saturday!!!
Can't wait to meet Leah in person and get tips in her 
Feathers to Flames Class :)
What have you been up to?!
Thanks for stopping by - heading over to link up with Lee at Freshly Pieced - hop over for lots of inspiration!!
Have a quilty day!
