WIP Wednesday

This week I made up some ground on the Summer Sampler Series blocks.  I made three blocks.  I have five blocks to go on this series.  Here's a new block I haven't posted

I really like this monochromatic color scheme in maroons!  Don't cha love the 1960's rug? 

I made my first liberated house block ever this week for my Block Swap Adventure partner, Staci.  I wasn't totally thrilled with the house so I also made her a star and mailed them both.  Her color requests were red, white, and blue.

This week I also made two sets of the Block Lotto violet blocks (one in the correct size for the Lotto, and one 1" too big.  Oh well, they are a cute block and will make a cute baby quilt!
