Splendid Sampler

I am a MAKER...but
I'm not a big fan of BOMs or BEEs or RULEs
and I'm definitely not gonna MAKE 100 blocks of anything!
ESPECIALLY 6" finished blocks!

I had this bundle of Ink Blossoms, Sue Marsh, RJR
Added some solids from my stash...
yup...I drank the water.



 very soon...I figured out the tiny pieces in these blocks
were way to fussy for me...and a bit too traditional!
 I gulped down these blocks!

Block 1 - Hearts A Flutter
Not a fan of applique...so my heart fluttered off! 


Block 2 - Wings
I only did 4 sets of wings and no embroidered antennas!


 Block 5 - Simple Simon
Simple enough!


Block 6 - Focal Point
My point is...I stayed focused on this one!
 

Block 8 - Friends Around the Square
Does this represent my "square" friends?


Block 10 - Iowa
What can you say about Iowa?


Block 11 - Crocheted Thoughts
I don't crochet and my thoughts were to
forget the embroidered flower in the center 
and fussy cut one!
 

Block 12 - Checkerboard
Always ready for a fun game of checkers


Block 13 - Scrap Stars
 A star catches my eye now and again!



Block 16 - Pieces of Friendship




Block 17 - Family Stars
57 teeny weeny pieces that took me 3 hours to piece!
 A gaggle of geese that just about goosed me
to the next county!


I will add more fabric, impromptu piecing
build out the blocks to a size I like
 and hopefully make it feel modern.
Final project..to be determined!


That being said...
my Splendor ends here and 
I'm ready to drink again but this time...WINE!
