These blocks are the Sampler blocks that we will be making this month.  I post this so all those who are participating can look back and see what fabric should go where. 
Above, members attending the first Sampler meeting in May show off their blocks. 
The room was so full I had to take two pictures to get everyone in.  Notice how all the blocks look the same!  Looks like I was the only one who had a problem with these.
Of course, we had some show-n-tell that day.  Above Judy D. (left) shows us her pink quilt.  I love this quilt with it's snappy border.  I think I'll have to start collecting pink fabrics.  I bet one of my great granddaughters would love something like this!
Judy R. made this adorable disappearing 9 patch quilt from Easter themed fabric.  I'm sorry I didn't get a close-up of the blocks.  I love the soft spring colors.
Melanie used the theme of cars and motorcycles and guitars for the blocks in this large quilt.  She said she is still trying to decide whether to put on red or black binding.
 Julie B. showed us this lovely bag that called for 8 fat quarters (I think I remember that correctly).  I love the design on the side.
 Julie also made this cat quilt.  She used a panel for the middle and designed the rest of the quilt herself.  Don’t you just love those little cat heads around the border?
 This is a close up of the panel.  Have I told you how I love anything cat?
 Marge shows us her latest stack-N-whack blocks.  These always intrigue me.  I don’t quite understand how these are accomplished, but these look superb to me.

ON ANOTHER NOTESamelia’s Mum has an adorable stitchery for you to make Mother's Day.  It’s not too late if you get started now!

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

I really like the motorcycle one. Very cool. Great pattern for showcasing some fun fabric! And you are too hard on yourself. Your blocks look wonderful. Really!

I used to have that cat panel! Maybe I still do? I bought it and some coordinating prints at a retreat some time ago. Another lady bought the other packet and we challenged each other to make something with them. I finished mine some time ago, but I don't even remember what it looks like now. I'll have to look to see if I have a picture.
