July FFT Sampler Block

It's been a while since I updated my blog I will try and do it more often. The above block is from my CQ International Sampler Round Robin. The stitches that were to be worked on for the month of July was the Chevron Stitch and the French Knot. You could add any extras to make the patches or square look better. I did two different styles of the chevron stitchon each side of the square. One of the chevron stitch I used was the half stitch combined to make a diamond looking stitch, straight stitches were put on each edge of the stitch. The other edge I did the full chevron stitch with a red square bead in the center of each space. The french knots were made into a type of hydrangea or allium flower with a few red seed beads. I also made a few spider roses and added green leaves and vines for the flowers.I hope that I made patches of the block are up to the standards of the rest of the group. I forgot to say that this quilt block belongs to Amy.


  1. I love what you have done with Amy's block!

  2. Love your stitches. I really like the diamond look you got with the half chevron. Great job!
