My cast is off! Woo hoo! Five looooong weeks, but it's off! Even with the cast, I had hoped to finish the Something New Sampler with Amy @ The Cute Life. Today is the last day for the Something New Sampler link up, and while I finished all of the blocks, plus made three extra Sashiko blocks, I've only quilted half of them. Oh well, c'est la vie! Thanks for a fun quiltalong, Amy. I loved trying all the different techniques! Thank you also to all the blog teachers who provided the tutorials for the different techniques -- very well done, all!

Here are my new blocks:
