Sun Bonnet Sue Sampler Quilt

I decided to add to my busy summer by taking a Quilting Class at the Local Hancock Fabric Store here in  Council Bluffs. The class is for 3 months and we meet on the 2nd and 4th Thursday nights of each month. I decided that I would do my quilt blocks in Metallic Reds, Greens and Golds and Very Pale Blue. The original pattern calls for only nine 9 one of each pattern and Sun Bonnet Sue. I decided that I wanted to make it a little bigger and decided with 24 blocks. The blocks above are the first two classes that I attended. The First Class was the Shoo Fly block and Friendship Star. I made 2 Shoo Fly block one in Gold and Red. The Friendship Star also has two blocks one in gold and the other Red. The Second Class day was spent on making the Churn Dash and the Grecian Square. The churn Dash blocks were made one in Green and the other in Red. The Grecian Square block, I made 2 blocks with a white center and 1 block with a colored center. The blocks with the white center I made one of each Green and Gold. the colored Center block was done in Green. I will post a entry when I get the entire quit done. It's all done in Christmas fabrics.
