Sampler Quilt Finished with Pictures

I’ve been working on a new project and trying to finish the Sampler Quilt from May for awhile now. Finally, this past week, I hand stitched the binding and yesterday I was taking pictures when the grandchildren stopped by. The pictures were quickly taken and the quilt is ready to find a home somewhere in this house. I think it turned out all right. Can you see Lucy, our Great Dane puppy, walking and sniffing the ground behind the quilt. She has to be right there with us no matter what we’re doing.

If you’re interested, the patterns are still posted. Just click the QAL menu at the top of the blog.

There were enough scraps left over that I have already made twelve more blocks for another quilt and twelve more blocks for a third quilt. Will show you those in the coming days. As always, fabric is like fishes and loaves. I’m a little tired of this fabric for now but will keep plugging along.

Just to give you a glimpse of the new project, it’s embroidery and it’s Christmas. And it’s finished and almost ready to show.

My blog is about helping other quilters learn to use great tools in their quilting through what I can teach and through finding other bloggers who have good information. In addition, I am a mother and grandmother. Other hobbies include any other stitchery which makes me happy at the moment. I worked in clinical research for most of my career. I am now retired and enjoying every minute.

  1. Love, love , love
    Thank you so much for the patterns and all the time you put in to give us a great project. Mine is almost done. Binding is next!

  2. Really beautiful Sampler Quilt. Awesome blocks. Somewhere along the way I missed the story of Lucy coming into your lives. I’ll scout out your older posts to see if I can find out. In the meantime, please work with her on her modeling skills. I’d like to see her in front of your quilt, or on the side. But maybe she is just too shy and wants to stay behind the scenes. Either way, she’ll soon be tall enough she can display your quilts for you! LOL!

    1. Hi Darlene, Thank you. I don’t do samplers often so this was a challenge and was really pleased with how it turned out. Lucy has been quite a challenge. We got her in May at 8 lbs and she has gained about 4 lbs a week ever since. She is five months old and based on her foot size, we expect her to be well over 100 lbs. She is a sweetheart and is incredibly loving. She follows Ted everywhere he goes – even walking behind him when he mows the lawn. She’s a real companion for both of us. And if she will ever be still long enough, she will definitely be modeling the quilts.

  3. Your quilt is lovely. Thank you so much for all the work you did in sharing your blocks. I know it is not easy to write clear, easy to understand instructions. You’re one of the best.

    1. Thank you so much Linda. That is a wonderful compliment for my instructions. I do work hard at it and am always hopeful they work. And thank you for participating. That means a lot to me as a quilter and pattern writer.
