Blogger’s Quilt Festival – City Sampler!

100 blocks,

almost 365 days,

at least 20 posts…..

And finally the City Sampler is here!

Actually it was finished ages ago, but I got waylaid by the photography side of things.

Spring '14 Blogger's Quilt Festival - AmysCreativeSide.com

Really though it seems to have been perfectly timed for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival, yay!! Last time I didn’t have the confidence to put anything on show, but I did have fun visiting everyone else’s beautiful quilts so I decided this time why not enter.

City Samplers – Blocks 46 – 48

I’m almost past the halfway mark with these now which makes me happy!

Will be posting the next lot pretty quickly (as yet again I am behind) I just haven’t quite finished them yet.

These new ones are my favourites for a while….I think..I probably say that every time!! Anyway as a batch I love these colours together ……in fact one of the things I’ve loved most of all about making these millions of blocks is that I’m constantly finding new fabric and colour combinations to make me drool.

As I’m halfway (nearly) it’s about time for a recap…….favourites so far must be…….

  • kona salmon, essex linen in black, timeless treasures raindrops in yellow and some kind of low volume white (in this case Indian Summer)
