If you are making blocks (or thinking about making blocks), please do blog about it here.  Use the category my sampler and the tag mod mod qal. This will make it easy for someone to take a quick look at what others are up to by looking at posts in the my  sampler category.


  1. Hi Sophie, i thought about making an additional diagonal bar block when I made the other three. Now I get to pick out another beautiful orange fabric to make a fourth. This is going to be a very nice sampler. Thank you!

    • I love the fabrics you’re using for your sampler.

  2. This is going to work out wonderfully Sophie! Thank you for such beautiful designs!
