Simplicity Quilt Sampler with Nina With Freckles / by Riane Menardi

After my last sewalong and finishing my sister's graduation quilt (I'll post soon, promise!), I took a break from my machine. I went on vacation to see some of my oldest friends, went to a graduation and a wedding, and focused on work in between. 

But this week I've been pining for some sewing, and I wanted a fun and easy project that would be low-key for summer. I was browsing ninawithfreckles' website after our fun MQGIM swap, and ran across her beautiful Simplicity Quilt

So modern, right?! I love the colors, the simple design, and the fun block patterns. Here's my take on the first two blocks, available now on Nina's site. (block 1 here, block 2 here)

block 2

And now I see that I really need some Flatter... look at those wrinkles! Oh well. Fun and easy is the name of the game. Want to sew along? Head to Nina's blog to get blocks 1 and 2, and stay tuned for the next block!
