Antique Sampler and threads

I just finished the latest 8 blocks of this project.  I now have 40 finished!  they are so easy to make, and I am really enjoying playing with the colours.
This is the latest - 4 of two different blocks.  One is English Paper Pieced and one is appliqued

Something interesting I found out while I was appliqueing these blocks.  They all have different colours, and it is darn annoying changing needles or threads all the time.  I found that I really only need one thread!  I am using the Aurifil thread in the colour Fern..  It blends with everything.  I even tried it with the black, red and dark blue - you can't see it.  Not sure it would stand up to judging if there was a really picky judge doing the rounds, but I am happy not to have to keep changing.

Here are all my fniished blocks - 40 of them. They are so addictive, that I have to ration my time with them, so I can get a few other things, like the Cherry Tree Blocks and the Circuit Rider done

There are still 2 places left in the Antique Sampler BOM, and the Circuit Rider is ongoing.

I am also working on a new scrap quilt for my collection,  As I drag out an old piece of fabric for the scraps, I also cut a 7" piece for the sampler blocks, saves time, and I get to re-vist all my old fabrics.
