Saturday Sampler #29

The weather has cooled off here and is much more comfortable for sewing now...what a relief! I am hoping to get back to work/fun....machine quilting this project and piecing the blocks for this quilt.
The second last block for my Saturday Sampler...aka" Chocolate Covered Strawberries" is finished. Again I put the dark colour as the background and think it turned out quite nice.
Block Name: Spring Blossom
Block Designer: Peg Spradlin
Pattern Source: Quiltmaker's 100 blocks magazine
You can download foundations to paper piece the long pointy parts of this block here, but I just figured out the measurements and drew those 4 blocks on freezer paper.
Next week will be very exciting as I post the LAST sampler block and put them all up on the design wall to see what the blocks look like together!
