You Can Do It- Skill Builder Sampler

Slowly, I'm beginning to catch up with a few neglected projects.  The next ones on the list were the blocks for the Skill Builder Sampler.  I needed to catch up on five blocks.  Three got done yesterday.
 Block 12-House and tree-improvisational piecing, quite a challenge when you like things to be neatly set out and explained, but I am getting better.
 Bonus Block-my take on a waverunner block.  Now it didn't matter on this one that there was no pattern, I was quite happy going with the flow.
 Block 13-my favourite, a string block using paper foundation.  I think I would love to do a whole quilt like this, great way to use scraps.
And, not to be forgotten, another Dorset button, this one with a buttonhole lace edging.

I just saw your blocks on Leila's flickr site - they are all lovely, considering you made them in record time! I gave the waverunner block a miss, as well as the last paper piecing block, as I thought it was overkill to do more triangles and squares using paper, when we'd just done a heap of them the normal way. I was hoping (still am) that Leila will focus on more traditional paper piecing next month - hexagons and other shapes.

Your blocks all look great! But I really like the house with the tree! Another beautiful button too! :0)

Beautiful work as usual.

Your blocks are all great. My favourite is the string block, too. I have made one towards a quilt. It is going to be a long time project, I think. The button you made is marvellous. Your progress on these is wonderful.

It's always nice to try a new technique. Even if you decide it isn't for you there is always something new. Cute house. The button is georgeous.

I love how you feel you've been neglecting projects when in reality you've been creating the most beautiful and intricate buttons and toggles.

These really are lovely blocks.
