Antique Wedding Sampler Blocks 3 and 4

Today I'm sharing pictures of blocks 3 and 4 of the Antique Wedding Sampler Quilt blocks made by Paula and me. The pattern is from the book Primarily Quilts by Di Ford Hall. These blocks were relatively quick to make. Perhaps the most challenging component was the little compass in the middle of block 3 but in my next post I'll share some tips on constructing both blocks.

I chose to use a different arrangement of HSTs in my block. It's always fun to be able to personalize a quilt block by making changes!

For block 4 I went with the pattern including the little appliqued bud in the corners of the star in the centre however Paula chose to do some broderie perse instead and I think that the result is beautiful.

Until the next time, happy sewing!


  1. Your blocks are beautiful! I like your arrangement in block 3 better than Paula's but her block is pretty too. Thanks for sharing! Who knows, I might actually make this quilt someday.

  2. Beautiful blocks, Karen! I've admired that quilt in Di's book.

  3. Simply beautiful the colorways you've chosen...hugs, Julierose

  4. Your blocks are just so charming--love them! Thanks so much for sharing them--I'm looking forward to seeing your tips!

  5. These are lovely! I like your arrangement. Funny, I've looked at that block so many times and never got excited about it - until now!!

  6. OK OK - I am convinced - this one really needs to get on my list! Your blocks are so beautiful - love the colors. I know I need to move up North where the real quilter's are! LOL

  7. Awesome blocks Karen !! Congratulations ! And I love the colors you used !!

  8. Oh, these are just so beautiful - the fussy cutting, applique, and broderie perse are all really lovely with the fabrics you guys are using.

  9. What beautiful blocks. I came here this time from Carol's post of her beautiful blue and white AWS. You are both inspirational and empowering thanks to your generosity in posting such amazing pictures and detailed tutorials. I am going to do a blue and white AWS (I am currently making a blue and white Ann's Legacy) and am going to try the 'quilt as you go' method......all because of yours and Carol's blogs. Thank you!

  10. Beautiful blocks! Love Paula's touch of broderie perse and looking forward to seeing more.
