K-6 ..... WINDMILL

I am finding that maybe the hardest part of this sampler quilt is actually the posting of my completed blocks.  I really like the sewing part, but I am definitely putting off the posting part.  I now have 5 blocks completed, but am only posting about my second block at this time.  I'll blame the cold, nasty winter weather here in Ohio for not having the ambition to post.  LOL
So, the next lucky block to be chosen in my Loyal Union Sampler Quilt is Block K-6 ... "Windmill".  Thank goodness I pulled another easy block to start my adventure into quilt sampler land.  I close my eyes and pull out a block number from my envelope and say a silent prayer, please let this be another easy block.  LOL
I think another hard part of this journey right now is picking which fabrics from my sampler stash I will use.  I have my design wall up and my block placements numbered.  This gives me an idea what  fabrics used in my blocks will play nicely next to each other.  But, again, I think I have some really nice fabrics and I want to see them all at once in my blocks.  Oh well, this is suppose to be a slow, enjoyable journey, so I'll just have to maybe make some good fabric choices for each of them.

Okay, so far so good!  Easy layout, and they match!!

Everything lined up, I am a happy camper.

Number 2 block is completed .... now the envelope please ..... which one will be the next block?
It looks like the next block to be sewn will be J-5, Timepiece.  Now I am getting into the tricky ones, at least for me.  The dreaded flying geese ... this has not been one of my favorite things in the past to make.  As I stated earlier in my post, I have already made this, and I will be posting about the fun I had with this one.  Or, maybe by the time I post again, I will have made this block one more time.
Oh, the suspense of it all!! 
Thanks for stopping.
