    I am presently trying to assemble Eleanor Burns' sampler No.2 from her series on Egg Money Quilts. So far, I made the Dresden Plate and the Turkey Tracks. I have a long way to go still.

    I know that sampler quilts can have a theme: patriotic, houses, stars, goose flights, etc.. Did you ever make a sampler quilt? Any picture to show us?

    No, I have never made a sampler, but I am going to someday, it is on my list. I want to do a star sampler, with all different sized stars.

    Here's a sampler that I made several years ago. I just wanted to try out some easy blocks to see if I liked the idea of making a quilt. Guess what? I was hooked. I machine quilted the sashing and hand quilted the individual blocks. Not too accurate, but the quilt police haven't arrested me yet. haha

    I've got a pink and brown sampler top ready to be quilted, but I can't find the doggone thing. We've done some major rearranging in the house, and it apparently sprouted legs in the process. It's here somewhere. :roll:

    I find myself getting bored quickly if all the blocks are the same, so sampler quilts seem to be perfect for me. :)

    I considered participating in the Farmer's Wife Sampler quilt, but after glancing through several books on Amazon, I decided to go with Sylvia's Bridal Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts: The True Story Behind the Quilt - 140 Traditional Blocks. Just a personal preference. I don't know when I'll get to it yet. :lol:

    Hello Louise

    Here is my first ever quilt made 1986, handpieced and hand quilted - no theme here, just a variety of blocks when I was learning patchwork sewing

    One of the 1st quilts I made was a sampler made when taking a class.
