City Sampler Quilt Along :: Blocks 40, 41, & 42

Crazy, but this week's blocks weren't half as quick as normal, especially #40 there. 24 pieces in one 6 1/2" block! But the end result was definitely worth it.
The next two weren't quite so tricky.


By the way, are you following along with the City Sampler posts at Sew Sweetness? Today there were some handy tips - for block storage, for stitching diagonals - good stuff.
As is my block-filled book. Awesome, huh?

Linking up with Sew Sweetness.

I finally purchased it after seeing lots of gorgeous blocks surfacing in blogland. I'm now waiting for it to arrive so I can try them myself.

Extremely awesome. I love your blocks. Some of the farmers wife blocks had a gazillion pieces too. You are getting there!
