Fungly sampler quilt

This is what my fungly quilt is looking like on my "design bed." I'm calling it a sampler quilt. Remember years ago, people made sampler quilts in shades of brown calico? I made strips of the blocks and I have to join them together. I wanted to get them to be approximately the same width. But this is not the final order of the blocks yet. I happen to have a very big piece of that strange brownish solid color. So I'm using that for the sashes. I once was fascinated by the quilt block called "Practical Orchard." But I had a hard time figuring out how to make all the bits of the block fit together, and how to set the quilt. There's my two failed attempts at the quilt block in the fungly. A good place for them. I have lots of stuff for the border of the quilt, and I'm having so much fun so far.

What fun! A perfect place for all those trials. I love how the blocks aren't all the same width, so the rows are all different sizes and numbers and styles of blocks.

I love that you have a design bed!! Mine is the one I sleep in. It's the only space (floor or wall) I have that will fit quilt pieces during the layout process!!
