Fussy Cut Sampler QAL - Blocks 45-48

This is the final chapter in the Fussy Cut Sampler. Thanks for sticking with me as I have shared my blocks each week, it has been so much fun.  Now the problem is going to be choosing a sashing fabric, I have no idea what I'm going to do!
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 45
Block 45.  I have a confession to make: this block is supposed to use freezer paper and I didn't use it.  
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 46
Block 46. This was another hard one for me, I am not a fan of matching up repeats because I am not very good at it.  
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 47
Block 47.  I didn't really follow the rules on this block either, I got carried away with picking fabrics and forgot that each of the shapes was supposed to contain a motif.  
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 48
Block 48. This is the final block and creates a custom label. I didn't want to use my name and I didn't have many text fabric options in my, so I decided to go with a short phrase that I knew I would enjoy seeing on my quilt and happy fabrics to go along with it.

Chroma Quilt

The July Culcita Box contained Alison Glass' beautiful Chroma collection. It is part of her Handcrafted line, which means that the fabrics were created by hand through a Batik process.
Chroma Quilt
It was beautiful to sew with and even more lovely to hand quilt.
Chroma Quilt
I hand quilted randomly spaced squares around the different shapes with perle cotton in a very light gray.

The backing is another Alison Glass print and the binding is a purple solid. 

Finished size: 40" x 50"
Fabric: Chroma by Alison Glass from the June Culcita Box
This quilt is now available in my shop

Fussy Cut Sampler QAL - Blocks 41-44

This week's Fussy Cut Sampler blocks focus on creating a narrative.
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 41
Block 41. This block is about picking a theme.  I looked through my stash for a very long time with this one and decided to use some precious scraps of Heather Ross roses in combination with this rose background fabric.
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 42
Block 42. When I saw the title of the chapter, I had a feeling this block was coming.  This block is supposed to use all prints from a single collection.  I rarely buy more than a couple of prints from any given collection so this one also took some searching.  Good thing I love Alexia Abegg's Printshop collection!
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 43
Block 43.  I almost forgot to use these Heather Ross mice in the quilt, I'm glad I remembered!
The Fussy Cut Sampler Block # 44
Block 44. This block is titled "you in a block." I decided the best way to approach this was to just use some of my all-time favorite fabrics and hope they look ok together.  I think it worked out pretty well!
