This is the beginning ......... as I have started out behind on my monthly Loyal Union Sampler blocks,  I have decided, and hopefully true, to choose one that looks fairly easy to do.

To manage my 3 yards of background fabric, I have cut it down to a manageable size, 18" x 22".  Since all the blocks will have small amounts of fabric, a fat quarter square should work really well.

My background for all the blocks is a light beige fabric.  It is called "Floral Gatherings" by Primitive Gatherings for Moda

This block requires 2 different fabrics along with the background.  I've chosen this med. blue fabric, also from Primitive Gatherings by Moda, and a floral green and blue by Molly B's Studio, a Marcus Fabric.

First block completed, finished size 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" square.  It actually came out perfect.  On to the  next 35 blocks. LOL
Biggest challenge of this block was getting the picture into this post.  Still getting used to the new set- up with my new computer.  I will conquer this in time.

Don't forget to check out my other blog. @  


  1. Have you read the book this quilt goes with?

  2. No, but I am in the process of reading it, thanks to your comment. Fell in love with the quilt, and now I have an understanding of how it began. Thank you.
