2019 Quilter's Planner Sampler Quilt

First of all - thank you for supporting my quilt sale and fund raiser last week. I raised $965 for Fostering Great Ideas. Quilts doing good again!

I recently finished quilting and binding the Sampler Block of the Month Quilt that was featured in this year's Quilter's Planner. This is a block-of-the-month that is included in the quilt pattern magazine that comes with each planner. The quilt was designed by my friend, Cheryl Brickey from Meadow Mist Designs. She created a very interesting setting for the sampler blocks, but of course, I had to do something different.


I used 5 of the blocks from the Sampler Quilt and set them diagonally, adding some negative space to square it up.


The fabrics are all blues and blue-greens, mostly prints from various Alison Glass lines.


The center block section is quilted with a grid, with diagonal lines in the striped and solid white areas. In the white, I spaced my quilting lines to mimic the spacing of the quilting in the striped sections.


The backing is a white with gray Alison Glass print and the binding is the same solid used in the stripes.


I've been waiting for the perfect quilt to photograph in front of this beautiful mural in my home city of Greenville. It was done by local artist Joseph Bradley. My friend noticed the cute bird peeking around the quilt on the right. I wish I was clever enough to have planned that, but I got lucky!


It's quite large and makes such a statement! I think I need to make another quilt to photograph here :)
