Donated Sampler Blocks Finished

This stack of great sampler blocks were donated by a Marilyn, a member of the Tyler Modern Quilt Group.  She had made them for a blocks of the month and never turned them into anything.

I was delighted to inherit Marilyn's UFO and turn them into a quilt for Covered in Love! I simply enlarged the blocks with a textured black (something from the Grunge line with a lot of blue in it). Simple and striking!

The fabrics in the sampler blocks are really interesting and bright.   The quilt finished at 54"x72".

As always, anyone interested in contributing to Covered in Love can comment or email for an address.

UFOs, WIPs, blocks, tops, and of course finished quilts are all welcome! Also, this month I am collecting patchwork mosaic blocks.  You can find the tutorial post here.  Thanks, everyone!

Linking to Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday.


  1. What an amazing use of unwanted and unloved blocks! These have made up into a gorgeous quilt and for such an amazing cause. Well done!

  2. Another great finish, Kat! The blue in the Grunge fabric picks up the blue in the blocks and is really beautiful.

  3. Those were some pretty awesome blocks to score. Great job on your finish!
