Sampler Quilt finish

A year-long project, done. I enjoyed every minute making this quilt, from finding patterns to fabric selection to piecing to quilting to photographing. We took advantage of a beautiful autumn day and late afternoon light yesterday to snap some pics.


I shared more info about the quilt and the blocks here.

Now I can just sit back and enjoy the results of all the fun work...





In the white area between each block, I quilted a simple feather design, custom drawn to fit in the odd shaped space. Each block was custom quilted - which sounds pretty fancy, but basically I quilted designs in each block with no predetermined plan.



Backing and binding to finish it off...



A personal treasure.

  6. I went back and reread the post in August about the blocks. This quilt is of tremendous sentimental value from the fabric choices to your birthday and quilting milestones to the fact that five special friends made blocks for you. This quilt is a treasure, indeed.
