I'm still working on the sampler quilt. First, I applied sashing around the individual blocks to get this:
And two borders and some quilting later, it looks like this:
It's a lot of stitching in the ditch in and around the blocks, along the sashing and borders, and then a simple design in the wide border that did not require free-motion stitching. I was not quite ready to drop the feed dogs.
Now all that remains is the binding. I wanted to get it started today but it turned out to be a great day for cleaning and continued unpacking. Maybe by the end of next week. Maybe.
