WIP Wednesday: Terrain Summer Sampler Blocks

Wednesday is here! This is what I've got on my design wall these days.

Rose Star Blocks

I've got ten of these done, now. I pieced all of the blocks I cut in May, so now it's back to the Olfa mat to prepare some more. I cut pieces for another two blocks this week. If you want to make some of your own. Claire's got a great English paper piecing tutorial at selfsewn.

I got back to making some of these this week. These two blocks are all Terrain, and I like them even more than the other blocks I've made mixing Terrain with other fabrics. I think I'll use my original blocks for something else and just do a set in Terrain. There's a lot of changing plans midstream around here ;-)

These are the Summer Sampler Series blocks I made to swap and donate to the Austin Modern Quilt Guild. The goal was black and white blocks with a pop of color. This is the end of the swap, though, so you won't see any more in this color scheme.

I can't wait to see everyone's WIP updates! I'm linking up with Freshly Pieced, Sew Much Ado, Whatever Goes Wednesday, and Rae Gun Rambling.

  1. soooo beautiful - or is that sew beautiful?!
    I would love to try a similar thing in paper.
    I made a series of paper mandalas for my bedroom years ago, and you've inspired me to have another go!
    I'm a new follower - I'd love for you to come across and join me too - the more the merrier! x

  2. Lovely! It's amazing how different each of your Rose Star blocks looks. And I love love the colour scheme Summer Sampler Series. The turquoise is set off beautifully by the whit, grey, and black.

  3. How many ways can I say STUNNING!!

  4. Wow, love all the different blocks, you have been busy!

  5. Your rose stars look amazing and the blocks are all fabulous! X

  6. your evening star block is so pretty...they all are...but this one just stands out. you do beautiful work. it looks hard.

  7. Great Rose Star blocks! Did you get your paper pieces in a set somewhere? I want to make these eventually. They've been on my to do list for a while. :) Amazing color choices.
