3 More Sampler Blocks

Today was pretty but cold. I did all my chores and then after supper I made three more blocks for the LHQSQ (Sampler Quilt.)

I am not sure I can tell you the names of these. I know the first one is Thrifty.
The next one she has listed as Double X No. 1

Then there is this one,  a Four-Patch Chain


But this last one is not in the Quilt Along at all.  Rather I took the leftover pieces and decided to make my own block.  So, unless someone knows a "proper" name for it I am calling it "Monday Leftovers."

Honestly, I really like this little block. The quarter-square triangles combine with the half-square triangles to make an interesting block.

Do you ever create your  own blocks just for fun? I find it entertaining. For me it is like playing with some of the tangram puzzles I did as a pre-teen.

Comments are welcomed. I will reply when possible. Of course if you are a "No Reply Blogger"- I can not reply. Links in comments will result in the entire comment being deleted.

I LOVE your "Monday Leftovers" block!! Very creative!! There are sooooo many possibilities with mix-and-match Squares/HST/QST in a simple 9-patch. Your block would make a very nice full-sized quilt - ;))

My fave is the second photo. I always like distinct contrast, and that one seems to have it the most. That said, I can see a quilt of any of these blocks being striking. Their bright colors carry them!

All of those blocks are nice and especially the Monday Leftovers. The fabrics are fabulous, too :)
