It’s a (small) finish for this week and my Friday Flaunt. Many moons ago I started the State Fair Sampler as a free bom with Gayle from Sentimental Stitches. The blocks are 6″ finished and I now have 20 blocks completed. I started making some of the blocks from the free patterns provided but find I am also fascinated by many other blocks as well, so a lot of my blocks will not be the same.


I have been hand piecing my version of the Jane Austen quilt for many months now and needed a break so pulled out my blocks and fabric and printed out my pattern in EQ. Wasn’t well this week so sat hand piecing quietly and finished this block – yippee! Only 36 more blocks and borders to go – not sure how long that will take me. lol

I do have to drive one of the kids out to Rouse Hill for pre-licence driver training on 2 separate occasions next week so I am hoping to have another couple of blocks cut out by then so I can sit and stitch for the 3.5 hours he’ll be riding his bike.
