I was putting my new block away with the ones I'd made previously and came across a drawer full of multi-coloured scraps that I've been saving. Wow, have I saved a lot. I then remembered what I was collecting and saving them for. I thought that when I had enough variety and colours I would use them to make a sampler quilt when a QAL came along that I like the look of. Well, Splendid Sampler 2 has come along and I know I thought I would just carry on making them in French General and mix them in with the already made blocks from SS1. I've got 48 blocks made so far. I never intended to make all 100 blocks as I don't want a huge quilt, so I'll carry on and make a few more in FG from the SS1 book and start anew on SS2 in my scrappy, happy colours. So here's the first one again.

I liked doing the embroidered blocks in SS1 so I'm hoping there will be some more in SS2. I'm thinking I will try to incorporate a bit of stitchery in more of these blocks, if the design allows for it. I didn't want to overload on this one so just added a few straight lines.
