"Lots of Love" and "Happy Happy" Blocks

Here the two Splendid Sampler Blocks for this week.  The first one is called "Lots of Love" and the second one is called "Happy Happy".


This is my little Splendid Sampler clothesline.


I love this one and am thinking about making a mug rug in something similar .


These blocks have challenged me so much. I'm trying to stick to it and stay caught up.  Its always exciting to see what the next block will be!  Block 5 will come out tomorrow.


I keep thinking about what all the future blocks might look like.  Just think of all the holidays that will probably be represented:  St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Fourth of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Then there are all four of the seasons.   It will be fun!

Your blocks are beautiful.
I'm making The Splendid Sampler too. So excited.
Have a nice weekend.

Your blocks look lovely, but one is very different from the other in palette and feel. I m wondering (because I'm struggling with this myself): do you have a "grand plan" for color and setting, or are you just going all scrappy, making each block it's own little artwork and then seeing about setting and the overall picture later?

Sara, I'm going scrappy, but trying to use all bright colors. When I start to make a block I look through my scraps and fabrics and if I see something I love, I use it. Anything goes!
