Spring Sampler Blocks Completed!

I am so excited about this. If a project can't hold your attention set it aside for a little while. Not to long, and certainly make sure it is in a place that you will see it, so it will continue to stir within your brain. That's exactly what happened with the Spring Sampler. Just a little bit here and there, and now I've got it. With the addition of the last two blocks I have all I need for the child's camp charity quilt.

My pieced blocks will be interspersed with muslin in between. I'm thinking 8 bits of embroidery, and 4 inspirational quotes. So far I like these:

"Once you choose hope anything is possible." ~Christopher Reeve

"It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters." ~Epictetus

"A day without laughter is a day wasted." ~Charlie Chaplin

"The best way to give advice to children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it." ~Harry S. Truman

Do you know of any really good ones? I feel there must be more, but so far I'm not feeling it, so I must need a break.

The cornerstones for this quilt are butterflies, one of which can be seen in the header on the upper right. All four have been set. I need to do another load of laundry to pre-wash the muslin for embroidering.

I think they are coming along beautifully, and they do remind me of Spring!

Beautiful blocks. And how wonderful that you are doing them for charity.
