Design Wall Monday 7/22/13

I thought I was done with samplers. I was wrong. I have Sylvia's in progress and I am starting on two more.  Call me crazy that is for sure.

Here is the first few blocks of Pony Club, it is as I like to call it Farmer's Wife 2.  I may be teaching this class next year but haven't decided yet. These blocks seem huge to me. They finish at 8". So far I have used scraps only, which I like.

I had been working on about a block a day when I had time. I did this one and then realized it was wrong, go figure. I had to do it again of course and I just love set in seams...yeah right.

Pony Club only has 90 blocks so it will seem like nothing after DJ and Sylvia's other than the fact that these have a lot of paper piecing and set in seams. Oh well.
For more DW head on over to Patchwork Times.


  1. Oops, I see that I'm not the only one to get mixed up making blocks. There's a New Book coming out by Jennifer in September, just FYI. The Loyal Union Sampler only has 121 blocks this time. I think I'm CRAZY to think about starting it. I'm in good company, I know.

    1. I pre-ordered it and will be probably start that one then. So I am in a hurry to get this one done...lol
