Summer Sampler Series: Rocky Road to Kansas

Have you signed up for the 100th blog giveaway?

I settled on a quilt design for some Austin Modern Quilt Guild donation blocks from the Summer Sampler Series, but I was annoyed that two identical blocks I made ended up in this quilt top. I figured that one would get swapped out and one would stay in the donation pile, but it didn't happen that way.

I love the Arkansas Traveler block, but there was one too many in this quilt, so I crafted up this Rocky Road to Kansas block that I haven't tried yet. 

There's only two more Summer Sampler Series blocks that I haven't made yet - hence the duplicate blocks. I can't wait to make them for my own set!

Taadaa! Swapping out my duplicate block makes me feel so much better. That means I'm crazy, right? Oh well, at least there are pretty blocks to look at in my rubber sewing room.

Happy Crafting!


  1. if that's crazy then I think you are probably not alone! I'll join you in your padded cell any day ;-)

  2. I love that you added your own block to counter balance the top!

  3. My vote is for sewing empire, the best online store for buying sewing machines.
