Stack em up in more ways that one!

I met with two Sampler Clubs this week. The group that meets Monday night had a tricky block, so didn't finish their blocks, but they were doing great by the end of the night. Two of them did bring their blocks from the last two classes, shown below. Laura brought her Stack n Whack quilt from last month's class to pick out borders. Pretty pretty!

Laura's Sampler 19 blocks

The Sunbonnet Sue Sampler group met for the first time last night. They just finished Beginning Quilting in June and were excited to be working on their next quilt. They learned how to make and square up half square triangles last night to make Friendship Star blocks. 
 They all chose a variety of fabrics, so it will be interesting to see how they all come together!

 I sent them home with the pattern to make the Shoo Fly block before class next month.
Do you remember your first quilt? What pattern did you use?
 I pieced the backing and prepped the new version of the Which Way is UP? quilt yesterday so it's ready for the quilt machine. I don't think I have posted any pix of it yet, but will do so soon!  I hope to get it loaded today and start the quilting. Wish me luck!

Always love seeing everyone's color choices. And amazing how different the quilts will look because of it.
