This week I finally got back to sewing blocks for the Community Sampler sew along!
I do not have a sewing room in the home we're renting here on the mountain, but I have the most incredible view from the dining room table where I set up one of my Singer featherweights.

I have been thoroughly enjoying stitching up my signature bright colours mixed with low volume fabrics for some scrappy blocks.
Here's a peek at all the blocks I have stitched so far. This is not the final layout, but a good way for me to view the mix as I select fabrics for the next block (especially as my first 6 blocks haven't been unpacked yet ;o). Hopefully, I will complete the final blocks before the weekend is over, so that I can get the top assembled. The sew along has progressed to adding borders to the quilt top and I would love to catch up! Looks like that along with sewing like crazy, I will need to unpack my first blocks and some fabric for setting the blocks (oh, and my large quilt ruler would be pretty handy to have, too!). Wish me luck! Happy weekend!
