Kansas Dust Storm


Well, I did it.  I finished all the blocks in the Summer Sampler Series.  The last one was a paper pieced beauty called Kansas Dust Storm.  I learned a lot about paper piecing and don't think I'll be so apprehensive to try other quilts using this method.  


Here are all twelve blocks together.  Now I have to figure out how to set them.  I've been working on other projects as well and will have some things to show you next week.  Hope everyone is having a good Saturday!

Smiles,

  8. I love that block and you did such a terrific job on the center. It almost looks like a stack and whack block. Can't wait to see the completed quilt.

    I used the same fabrics for the farmers wife quilt. I am using a light yellow with pale cream polka dots for the sashing. I am anxious to see what you come up with. I love your blocks!
