Beguiling, Splendid, Project 48...Oh My!

Hi yall!  I know I've been MIA, but there's a reason!  My camera stopped talking with the computer and I couldn't get anything here to post!  So instead of showing you each and every step on my projects, we'll be doing a "round up" for the next couple of days. 

First, I've been working on the Beguiling Mystery, hosted and designed by Shelley at Cora's Quilts.  I've been using some gorgeous fabric called Jardin Gris, generously provided by RJR Fabrics to make this one.

I'm working with some of the blues and yellows with a touch of green and brown.  These fabrics...omg...the feel of them is fantastic.  I am thrilled with them.  Here are the first two clues...

Beguiling Myster Clues 1-2

I have this feeling that this is going to be one gorgeous quilt.  I can't wait for this mystery to unfold.

Next up, the Project 48 quilt.  Guys, this fabric I chose, literally, at the last moment.  I had just finished with my curved log cabin and had the aqua/teal all together.  I went through my stash and found a good white for a background and threw in a cut of red.  And voila!  Here's the progress so far...

Project 48 Blocks 1-11

Oh my!  It is looking so pretty together!  We are 11 blocks into the 48 total and I'm having a lot of fun with it.  There are normal blocks, wonky blocks, traditional and more modern.  Just fun.  And none of the blocks has been very difficult or time consuming yet.  I.  Love.  It.

And lastly for today is The Splendid Sampler.  I wish I could get a better picture but the best I can do is lay them on the floor as it's gotten so big already...

The Splendid Sampler Blocks 1-11

This one is really pushing my skills.  We've had applique' (ugh), embroidery, and traditional piecing.  But with 100 blocks, there will be plenty more to come.  I'm loving every second.  There has been a lot of interest in my setting for this block.  I'm happy to say that now that my camera has been communicating with the computer, I'm hoping to have the tutorial up today.  :)

And that's it for today!  Tomorrow, I'll share the progress on my other projects!  So glad to be back here and can't wait to share more!

Today I'm linking up with Patchwork Times, Main Crush Monday at Cooking Up Quilts, Bits 'n' Bobs for Design Board Monday, and Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt.

That sampler quilt is going to be amazing...I love all the different blocks. And choosing teal/red/aqua/white for Project 48 is just perfect! It's one of my favorite color combo's. Thanks for sharing all this loveliness on MCM!

I am sitting her pondering the idea of joining the Splendid Sampler. I just love seeing everyone's blocks and who doesn't love tiny blocks. They are just so darn cute. The other side of me knows I am crazy to even think about getting involved. I should be finishing quilts this year NOT starting new ones. Isn't that just how we quilters are. I just LOVE a good mystery.

I am loving your blocks and setting.
