Splendid Sampler

I've joined in with lots of other quilters doing The Splendid Sampler and enjoyed looking at everyone's take on the blocks and how they have adapted them to suit their own taste. 
I'm nearly up to date with the blocks which are released every Sunday and Thursday. There are a couple I'm leaving out so far as they aren't my cup of tea and I've only started one of the embroidery ones.
I decided to just use three colour's red,cream/beige and blue. I'm also trying not to buy many new fabrics and just use ones from my stash, so far I've just bought a couple of reds and one blue. 

The weather here in the UK is starting to warm up now, so I'm looking forward to doing some sewing outside soon. Fingers crossed!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend
