2011 #2 – Sampler quilt – part 1

I’m still working on the sampler quilt. First, I applied sashing around the individual blocks to get this:
With sashing applied

And two borders and some quilting later, it looks like this:
Borders applied and quilted

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.

  1. I really like the quilting pattern you chose for the wide border. The quilt has a whole is really pretty.
