Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Sampler Blocks 5 and 6

How are your 100 Blocks Sampler blocks coming along? I'm usually a big block kind of girl, but these 6" blocks are becoming addicting!

Here are my block 5 and block 6.


Block 5, Ladder Up, designed by Toby Lischko

I made two versions of block 6, Old Town Star, which was designed by Katie Blakesley. The first version was not doing it for me. When using small units to put the blocks together you can lose some contrast you would have when using larger units. The first picture below is my first block. Not enough contrast....  The second picture is the re-done version. Much better. :-)

Happy sewing! 



They look great. I have two blocks done. The year started out rough for our family and quilting has been slow to none. Things are better and sewing has begun! I need to tag my two blocks.

Sorry to hear you had a rough start to 2016, Patricia. I look forward to seeing your blocks!
