Sampler Blocks for 2011-2012

Each year we have an ongoing twice-monthly block offering.  We call it the Saturday Surprise Sampler.  It is a variation of a block of the month program.
On every second Saturday from September into June, we make up another kit for a 12 inch block in two colorways.  you can read more about the nuts and bolts of how the program works here, on our webpage,
Over the years people have created some absolutely amazing and beautiful quilts!
These are the blocks from last year:
 We had two different colorways:
Etchings, by Three sisters for moda: reds, grey and turquoise, and off white
1930's reproductions with some solids
