Sampler Complete


My Sampler is finally complete, after hours of pattern writing!!! It will be available early next month. Sally is going to run it as a pattern, a kit and as a class quilt, where 2 blocks will be taught ever week.

Im really happy with it, it was actually hard to give it up!!! The stippling took the longest time but i love the effect (and my shoulders and arms r happy that its over!!) Its gives me a lot more confidence in free motion quilting and ive found a few ideas that I'd like to try later on.

I still have 2 more designs waiting for the patterns to be written (some of u may remember the House Medallion) and ive also got a cute Xmas cushion, that had been on my design wall for so long it left an imprint lol I had planned to start writing them up today but ive decided to take a day off and sew something for me (maybe a Winter Block!!!)

My Sampler still doesnt have a name.......Anne Ida and I have been throwing around a few ideas and Sally has her "Friendship Day" at the shop today so she is going to ask the ladies for some suggestions!!!!

Hope your having a great week!!!

OOOOOOO!! I love it!! Samplers are my favorite kind of quilts. I would be interested in purchasing this pattern from you. I still want the family values pattern. I am hoping for some Christmas money, then I can get them from you. You do beautiful work.

It's beautiful rose, and the quilting is stunning. Congrats on another finish. Enjoy your "you" time.

What a great sampler! Unlike Julia, I really don't usually like samplers, but yours uses colors and is put together in such a way that it doesn't seem like a collection of disconnected parts. I like the cozy feel of it, and I think that comes from both color and design. I'll want this, too. =)

This sampler quilt is beautiful! It looks great with the stiplequilting! You can be proud!

Rose said...

It's really lovely, Rose! The stippling is just beautiful too. I once stippled an entire twin sized sampler quilt, by hand. It took me six weeks of continuous work.
