    30s Sampler WIP (thanks MarthaT for inspiration!)

    This project uses Lori Smith's pattern "Ode to the 30's". I wanted a long term project, a sampler that I can machine, then hand quilt and that had both pieced and applique work! I am absolutely in love with a project like this!! ('course I haven't started the hand quilting yet!)Name:  30sWall.jpg

    Be sure to look up Lori Smith's patterns, mimom. I've got my eye on "Pieces of Time" next! There are all sizes for 30's fabrics!

    Oh, I can't WAIT to get my hands busy on a sampler! They're so pretty, yours included, of course! I have so many projects in the works right now that it will have to wait til after Christmas, for sure. lol
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
