Brand New Serendipity Sampler Blocks

016I started two new Serendipity Sampler classes last month and the blocks came back this weekend.  Check these out!  This block belongs to Cheryl.  She will add more leaves and berries.   It’s a great beginning!  Those white flowers are pretty wonderful.

005Here’s Pat’s block.  She bought teal berry fabric yesterday 🙂

Lynda Morris Serendipity SamplerThis is Lynda’s block.  She couldn’t be in class so she sent me this picture.  She calls it her Lilly quilt!

004Here’s Dee’s block.  I LOVE this.  She’s berry hunting.  We talked about not using lots of berries.  We shall see…

006Sue’s glowing Tula block!  She put a LOT of thought into fabric placement and it shows.  Beautiful workmanship.  She’s thinking maybe teal berries…

011Here’s Amy’s block 🙂   After a little prodding, she produced the “parts.”

017How great is this going to be??  She calls it her red, white and blue quilt.  I’m proud of her!  Keep an eye on this one.

013We all decided we loved Alice’s block.  She used those calm greens for her leaves and then had lots of fun with the stalks, stems and flowers.  Maybe orange berries?

012Rachel…ah, Rachel.  She was meant to be an appliquer!  Perfect points, beautiful stitching.  Check out the fussy cutting in the blue center stalks.  Yay!!

015Here’s Wanda’s block.  It’s so right!  She will use that red for all her berries and wait until next month!

014Finally, here’s Jennifer’s beautiful block.  I like it for lots of reasons.  She used Amy Butler’s fabrics and you all know how I feel about Amy Butler.  She TAUGHT HERSELF how to machine applique and she did a really good job.  Finally, she took my beginner quilt class some months back.  She has a great attitude and a pretty wonderful eye for color and it has been fun to watch her do anything she wants to do!

Most of these women have not appliqued before this class.  I am so proud of them!  We had a circle tutorial in the classes so they will be making Karen Kay Buckley’s perfect circles this month.   Stay tuned.

 

Monday Morning Serendipity

Our four-person Serendipity Sampler class met this morning at The Little General.  Paula wasn’t able to be with us but she promises to be back in action soon.  We missed her!

This Serendipity Sampler pattern comes from Kim Diehl’s book, Simple Comforts.

Here’s the show and tell from Month 5.  These appliquers have finished their four blocks and they are ready to work on the sashing.

099Char’s four blocks.  She is NO LONGER a beginner; she is doing a really good job.

100Here’s her latest block.  Great circles Char!!

 

101Jane’s four blocks.  This helped chase away those February blues!!

Her fourth block. Love the fussy cutting and those bright orange circles.

 

097Deb’s fabulous four blocks.

098She will add more berries to her final block.  We loved her “black star!”

Great job ladies!  You inspire me 🙂
