Sewcial Bee Sampler Block #3 - Flock

UPDATE: I have changed the original block, and the photo reflects the changes!

It is week #3 of the Sewcial Bee Sampler Sew-Along hosted by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell, who happen to be designers for my favorite fabric line - Art Gallery Fabrics! Although I am not a huge fan of HSTs, this sew-along is forcing me to perfect my skills, and I have a new appreciation for how pretty they are in a block.

I still haven't decided on a frame for the blocks, but I'm hoping to find inspiration as I go.

This is the original block, and the final block is the first photo.

You can find downloads for all the blocks here and here. There are also giveaways as the sew-along progresses, so don't miss out on the fun!


  1. Could you use yellow and/or blue for your frames? Or maybe something more neutral? Gray? I love your blocks so far. Also loving the HST method that gives you 8 HST's. That is pretty cool.

    I am sure as you build your collection of blocks, the right color will come to you.

    1. I have a yellow on my design board right now and like the look of it. But I love the idea of a lighter gray of some kind. Yes I just need to be patient.

  2. Very pretty block Linda! Your half square triangles look good! Christine x

  3. This is so cute! I love the fabrics, the polka dot in particular. Girl, you amaze me.

  4. That's a pretty one, Linda! I'm still in love with your polka dots, but that dark, flowery fabric is so beautiful. I've never had any Maureen Cracknell fabric, but now I want some!
