    30's Sampler

    I just finished quilting this 30's Sampler for my customer Joanne. It is a large quilt 100X110 and took forever to quilt. I used SoFine Threads quilted it using CC, Crosshatching and some feathers to enhance the blocks and to frame them. I took alot of pics and still didn't get in all the details.

    It took forever to finish this one! Thanks for looking.

    What a spectacular quilt! The fabrics are great! The pattern(s) are perfect & the quilting is just stunning! I'm particularly fond of the cross-hatching... so traditional & just the right touch for this beauty. Great jobs!

    I am in love with this quilt! I really adore these fabrics. The piecing is superb, and your quilting is just the right touch -- not too much. Good job, both of you!

    That is a beauty. You did a nice job quilting it. It is bright and cheerful, the thing we need as we are anxious for spring.
    Each day is a blessing, so do something you love each day.

    First let me say your quilt is breath taking and then could I ask did you do your applique after quilting the outer border or did you quilt around it?

    You did a lovely job on a beautiful quilt

    Such a pleasure to see quilting that enhances the design instead of most of the stuff I see here that just goes back and forth with no regard to the quilt itself.

    Wow. That's one of the nicest I've ever seen. The use of different fabrics is unreal. And the quilting for this project is perfect. Love the cross hatching
