Vintage Quilt Revival Sampler Blocks

Over the last few weeks, I have slowly been working on my blocks for a block of the month-style class I'll be teaching at Frangipani Fabrics later in the year, using the book Vintage Quilt Revival. I really love making sampler style quilts - it's way more exciting than making the same block repeatedly, and there is a great variety of blocks in this book. I finished the last few today while my mum looked after my wee one. 



I've chosen the ten star blocks from Vintage Quilt Revival for the class, and will be teaching two blocks a month over five months. These have been great fun to make, and I think it will be a really great class to teach, with lots of different techniques. One block is missing from the photo above, because I'm made a bit of a mistake and it finished at 10.5" rather than 12.5" - it took me forever to work out what I'd done wrong. All fixed now though ;o)

I *think* I've decided on a layout, so I'm hoping it will become a quilt top pretty soon (and quilted very soon after that. I have a plan!)

I love the block all the way to the left in the middle row! It's so fun and that little hour-glass in the center is so precious. Can't wait to see how you set the blocks!

Love your colour choices! I've bought Vintage Quilt Revival, but have yet to make anything from it yet. You're inspiring me to get out the post-its and choose something!
