Mid-month applique update! The Farmhouse Sampler!!

Karen and I are making this sampler, "The Farmhouse Sampler,", by Linen Closet Quilts.  Above is my latest block.  Pinned and prepped, not sewn, but well on the way!  



Please see Karen's blog and her pretty block here:

Here is the sampler so far.  I have pretty much used scraps throughout.  I think I will add the yellow circles in the center of the flowers for my latest block, for continuity. 

 And here is the entire quilt!  Keeping the end goal in mind, I decided to go ahead and cut out the diamond pieces for the border.  I am using an old gray uniform...it is the perfect color!!




Hope you are having a lovely, wonderful day!  I have a three hour mandatory class at the hospital this afternoon, so I am glad to get this post done.

I am an ardent admirer of Applique quilts! I’m never able to embrace the prep work, so I take delight when someone I know is working on one. It’s going to be beautiful.

YUP - I bought the pattern and plan on making it - your blocks are very pretty. You and Karen are doing a great job!
Have a wonderful week-end. A bit cooler here this morning, but we only walked 7 minutes - A day off!
