Loyal Union Sampler blocks 51, 52, 53, 54 and 55/121

I’m getting close to the half way mark on the Loyal Union Sampler by Jennifer Chiaverini. I’ve got another five blocks done which makes five completed rows so far.

First up is Home Sweet Home.

E-7 Home Sweet Home

This one is called Honey Bee but the design in the book also has some appliqué. I’m not having appliqué in this quilt so I’ve taken the liberty to rearrange the colour values of the base block so it’s more to my taste.

E-8 Honey Bee

Third up is Hourglass.

E-9 Hourglass

Now, I really like the next one which looks like a pineapple block variation but the construction is nothing like it. This is Illinois.

E-10 IllinoisThe last one in row five is Improved Four-Patch.

E-11 Improved Four-Patch

That’s 55 blocks completed so far. I’m getting there!

    well done! My favourite this time is the last block – makes for a bit of interest having all squares on the point.

  2. Your work is so precise! Great job!

  3. Oooh! Love the Illinois block, it’s my favourite of this set.

  4. Your precise block finishing is just incredible, thanks for sharing this sampler project with us!

    • Thank you Barbora. I’ve been working on this for a long time and thought I might be more motivated to finish if I try to make 5 blocks each week and show them here.

  5. So good looking blocks!!! The Honey Bee is great even without appliqué 🙂


I really enjoy reading your comments. Have a lovely day :-)
