    I took a sampler class last year at my LQS so that I could learn how to quilt. We did a block a month (I substituted blocks I didn't like for blocks I found online or created for myself, i.e. the morning glory applique). I did this quilt top as well as another with Australian fabrics. I am quilting the Aussie quilt on my machine but it is taking a long time so I had this one quilted. My LQS has a long arm in the shop and a lady who is learning to use it available to quilt. She and I custom designed each block and I was with her as she quilted. I finished binding it this morning. This is the first top I've made but the second I've had quilted. I call it "Garden Sampler" because it has flowers which represent the different houses I have lived in over the years; morning glory for California, fireweed for Alaska, rose for Idaho, Banksia for Australia, sunflower for Kansas.

    Cal. King Bed and it is big enough to cover pillows.
