Simple Sampler Quilt Along Week 2

Week 2 of Amy's Simple Sampler Quilt Along were 2 cute blocks.

Often I have heard quilters say that the fabric you buy from a quilt store is better quality then fabric bought in a regular fabric store. I've always disagreed, probably because it costs more buying from a quilt store. Well, I'm a convert now. Some of the fabric I bought for this project is impossible to cut so the pattern looks straight. I wasted a bit of my fabric trying before I gave up ...so this will be my Skewed Quilt.

Blocks 3 and 4 were simple and turned out 12.5" which has me sooo happy. It's such a good feeling to make something that turns out the size it's supposed to be ...something that had alluded me for the past few months.



My four blocks so far.



I can't wait for next week to see what Amy has in store for us.

"Moody Blues" came to mind for me - love the colours you've chosen. And I, too, was irrationally happy when my blocks finished 12½" upon completion!
