Scrappy Sampler from the Joined at the Hip Blog

So is anyone else doing the BOM Sampler from the Joined at the Hip Blog? I started it back in the winter and vowed to buy nothing to make this top. I have managed to keep my vow, so far. I have three rows done with two more to go.

The new block designs for August were posted on the 20th, but I only got around to making the blocks today and barely made it within the month of August...

I like how it is coming together, but I wish I had been more daring with my colors and gone more modern maybe for a BOM in 2014. Then, I would have probably bought more fabric.

I am also doing another country themed sampler from the BOM at Country Threads. The September block designs will post tomorrow and I should get those done this weekend. I also plan on piecing a couple of embroidered baby quilts. I also am excited to see the Schnibbles pattern for the September Another Year of Schnibbles Challenge--I am so hooked on them. Thanks for stopping in!


  1. I like the look with solids. And it's always fun to make a quilt that's completely from your stash!

  2. It looks great! And what a wonderful way to use your scraps--which always seems best with sampler quilts anyway. I feel the ones made with "planned fabrics" don't stand out as nicely as your scrappy one.

  3. I sure like what you have done so far! Looks like a wonderful scrappy sampler quilt... isn't it fun to do a variety of blocks knowing that they'll all "fit" together into a quilt?

  4. Looks very nice. Not colorful but yer beautiful anyway!!
