Quilt - As - You - Go - Adventure

A while ago, I posted about making a Thimble Blossoms sampler. I will never have enough time to make all of her beautiful quilts, so this is the next best thing. One of my blogging friends called it a Quilt-As-You-Go-Adventure. I really liked the name, so it stuck! The top is still in parts but it's at least progress, yay.

Dapper from the book Simply Retro
I absolutely feel in love with the Dapper block, it would make a great baby boy blanket.  This might have to become a full quilt. It's super easy and looks complicated, my favorite kind :)


Now the bottom half needs to come together, but at least now I am half way done!  How is everyone else doing on their WIPs?  This month is almost over.

Sew long for now,

  1. I like your color scheme! So soft! I really like the colors you chose for the swoon block! I've never made any of her patterns, but this sampler is looking pretty tempting!

  2. The dapper block is lovely! How fun to get to sample a lot of things and figure out what really speaks to you.

  3. This is such a good idea! I don't usually like samplers, but yours is lovely with the bigger squares. I love it!

  4. What a fun idea! Like the sucker I am, I made the whole Swoon quilt. And my mom wants a Fireworks quilt for her king-sized bed. I'm in trouble. This sampler, though, is going to be just right!

  14. I just love Thimble Blossoms. I have yet to make any of the blocks yet and this is a great way to highlight the ones you really like. Great choice of colors too. It's coming along nicely, can't wait to see the finished top.
