RSC19 Sampler

I am working on a new sampler quilt for 2019.  It is going to be a collection of 4.5-inch blocks in an alternating straight and diagonal setting so that each framed finished block in the quilt will be 7 inches.  48 blocks will make a large lap sized quilt.  You may choose to make a different number of blocks of course.
Here are several options for sizing based on different numbers of blocks.
I'll be posting tutorials for sampler blocks on Tuesdays from January to October of 2019.

If you choose to use a single background fabric to set all the blocks, 3.5 yards should be sufficient.  You may of course, mix different fabrics.  You will need more fabric if you plan to add more blocks to make a larger quilt.

Because collaboration makes everything more fun, I'll also be inviting interested participants to submit a block design of their choice.  Feeling creative and want to write up a tutorial?  This is your time to try out block design or share your ideas with other quilters.
I'll have links to any guest designer blocks and keep make PDF files for easy access.  The blocks may be pieced or applique, modern or traditional.  The only thing that won't work is an original copywritten or published pattern that is the creative work of another quilter. Traditional blocks are fair game.
I'll work up some initial tutorials for framing the straight set and diagonal blocks.  Stay tuned for more details!

I am dreaming I might find time to join in on this for a baby sized quilt...or else do a different RSC with Bonnie block. I miss it!

I would be interested in writing a tutorial for a block or two.

Why does the PF for block 7 not work. Also the Link to Ohio Star block 7 goes to block 8, tiny flower block?

Hang in there, koberg! Angela will get it all straightened up! Selling her house, moving to a new one, holding down a full time job. It takes a toll!
