Loyal Union Sampler Blocks 76, 77, 78, 79 and 80/121

Five more six inch blocks to share today. They’re all from the Loyal Union Sampler book by Jennifer Chiaverini.

The first one is called Missouri Star.

G-10 Missouri Star

Nevada needed a little hand stitching.

G-11 Nevada

Next is New Hampshire. I like all the different shapes and lines in this one.

H-1 New Hampshire

The fourth one is New Jersey. Those tiny white triangles….ugh! I know there’s easier ways to construct the same design but this is how it is in the book so I stuck to it.

H-2 New Jersey

The final one today is New York State. It’s one of my favourites so far because I think it could make some interesting patterns if repeated in a quilt.

H-3 New York State

Almost two thirds completed now.

  1. Nevada and New Hampshire really appeal to me. You’re on a proper roll now, aren’t you! Lovely work, as always.

          • Normally I tidy and clean at the end of each project. Somewhere along the line, I started too many things at the same time, and now it’s chaotic. And dusty. And full of bits and threads and piles. So I’m not at all surprised that other people have the same problem and it takes time to deal with that.

            • I always clean up at the end of a project as well but I opened a cupboard door last weekend and thought something radical was needed. Once I got started I couldn’t stop myself going through every cupboard, drawer and box. It doesn’t look any different when you walk in the room but I know it’s all been gone through and I feel so cleansed and organised again. Fun, fun, fun…

    All I can say is WOW!. New Hampshire is lovely and you can see so many different shapes in it the more you look at it. New York State is very interesting too. It is really turning into a fantastic collection a tiny blocks. Just wait until they are sew together.

    Seeing them close up is incredible. They are so precise and perfect, you are so clever. x
