A few more blocks [City Sampler and Lucky Stars]

I can't get enough of these City Sampler blocks. Once I've got over picking fabrics they go together so quickly and they are so bright and saturated. So here are this week's blocks!

Block 4: as yet unnamed - I'm working on it. Fabrics are Color Me Retro from Art Gallery, Bella by Lotta Jansdotta,  Kona Dark Violet, Pearl Bracelets and Summersville Spring from Moda.

Block 5: Fabric Delivery, because I got a very good fabric delivery this week, and I'm using this wonderful postage stamp fabric from Free Spirit. Fabrics are Pearl Bracelets, a Kaufmann blender, and Postage Stamps.

Block 6: Horse Chestnut, because today we took out an enormous horse chestnut tree from our garden - by "we" I made a gardener. I loved the tree but it was just too big - you can see the process of jungle to bare earth on my previous blog post here. Fabrics are Brown Nature Elements from Art Gallery, a yellow from Makower, and Cupcakery from SPX Fabrics (this one may not make the final cut).

And I was so excited to receive the next Lucky Stars block in my inbox on Saturday that I made it straight away. Some of the pieces in the 6" block are quite tiny!

Tomorrow I need to pick up yet more yellow fabric for Debs's quilt - it seems to be eating fabric!
