Sampler Spree - Week 10

This is the final week! I really loved making these little orange blocks.  After 105 (I skipped Block 60) blocks, I am glad it's over though.

Now to choose a sashing color. Any suggestions?

The blocks are:

  • #9 - Tussy Mussy
  • #11 - Lacy Lattice Work
  • #26 - Gift Box
  • #45 - Courthouse Steps
  • #53 - Cheyenne
  • #57 - Checkers
  • #61 - Maple Star
  • #70 - Spinning Tops
  • #74 - Nine-Patch Star
  • #77 - Thrifty

1. If EVER there was a block that requires you to lay out everything ahead of time and be methodical, it's Block 9. As you may notice, I flipped the bottom right corner at one point.
Here are my steps:

2. Block 57: I used strips for this block as follows.
Cut 3 strips 2" x 6" out of orange fabric and 2 strips 1.25" x 6" out of white. Make a strip set as below and sub cut it into three 2" sections.
Cut 3 strips 2" x 1.25" out of white fabric and 2 strips 1.25" x 2.5" out of green. Make a strip set as below and cut into 1.25" sections.

3. Block 77: I never make four patches by cutting squares. Cut strip(s)of background fabric and strip(s) of navy fabric 1.5" wide by a little more than 15". Sew them together along the long side and cut into 1.5" sections. Make four patches using these sections.

I hope my tips have helped.

Here are my orange blocks:

There is another free project this month - a table runner for Halloween. It uses Block 56.

I have uploaded the PDF pattern to the Twiddletails Quilt Alongs Facebook group.
All the other free projects are in the "files" section too.
