Sunday Sampler @ Six - Block 1

Firstly, check out this post on Brenda's blog, if you have an interest in helping those in need, primarily those in Haiti right now...
Brenda does a lot of utility charity quilts, and is inviting others to help where the can...

Yup! I thought I'd piggyback on friend K's, QGB, "Saturday Sampler Series", by posting mine on Sundays! lol! 8-)

K has been doing her Saturday Sampler Block posts for the last 20 Saturdays. Yesterday was the final block in that series...she things! I believe she has another set of blocks up her sleeve though, so stay tuned!! 8-)

Here is my first Sunday Sampler block!
I can't even give you a name of this block as the instruction page from this local BOM doesn't give one, except to say "Half Square Triangle Practice"!
I may have to hunt down this block on the internet to find a name... Unless one of my lovely readers knows it? 8-)I believe this was a 2006 BOM...
Wow! It is an old PhD!!! One of my many, and not on my Challenge list at this time... 8-)
I have 10 of the 12 blocks made, and bought the finishing kit...?... That, I have no idea of where it is at the moment!?! Hmmmm...? Another hunting trip/dive/dig!!! 8-)

I must say, I have not been very happy with this BOM. Many of the block instructions had major errors on them, or I had to read them 3-4 times to figure them out because of the way they were written. Also, seems that one of the blocks ended up much bigger, and a couple a tad smaller than the majority... This was not a great experience as it was one of my first in true patchwork piecing... 8-(
I will figure out what to do with these blocks in the end though!!! 8-)

I will post a new block from this BOM every Sunday @ Six, and maybe I will have the last 2 blocks done in time to show you on the 11th and 12th Sunday from now...
Here's hoping! 8-)

I love the block. I have no idea of the name, but it is striking!

Brenda said...

Very nice! I have seen this one at Quilt shows, I think, or a variation of it.

Don't you just hate when the instructions are not clear, or the blocks aren't the correct size? I've got one of those, and yep, it's a Phd! This is a cool block, looking forward to seeing the rest of them!

Love and hugs Gina xxx

It's a great block, but none of my quilt/block books seem to have this one. Although I had a pleasant hour browsing through my books i cannot find the name for this one! I hope there's someone who knows the official name, but you could call it Myra's Fancy...:)

Funny how nobody knows the name of the block, eh?
I'm looking forward to seeing more of your Blocks!
