Sample Blocks

Does anyone make sample blocks?  I sure do!  There are two different times that I make a sample block.

First, I create a sample block when I'm designing a pattern and I want to make sure that my sizes and instructions are correct.  Usually I make it out of scrap fabric but on occasion I like to make the sample block into something.  For example, I created a sample block using the center of the quilt that I designed for Craftsy, called Frequency Quilt Kit.  If you click the link, it will take you to the kit and pattern available through Craftsy.


Here is my sample block of the center of Frequency that I made into a table topper.



The other time that I make sample blocks is when I get the fabric in and want to see how the fabrics work together (and I'm also excited about the quilt and HAVE to see a block!)

Let me know if you make sample blocks and what you do with them.  I'm always curious as to how people go about making their quilts.

Thanks for stopping by!
