    Marcia that is beautiful! I wanted to put a navy sashing between mine but was worried that it would 'seep' into some of the navy in the blocks. I'm going to borrow your framing idea - hope you don't mind! :-D

    Hi Marcia,

    WOW!! :shock: This is one of the prettiest quilts of this BOM I've seen so far! :D Must be the Kansas Troubles fabrics, and of course your excellent workmanship. :thumbup:

    May I ask what your ideas are for quilting it? I've kinda been stumped with how to best quilt samplers. Do you treat each block individually, or do you do an all over design? I'm working on a sampler that has 22 blocks, two of eleven different blocks, so was wondering how you get your inspiration. :?:

    Again, awesome job!!

    K--that was my problem too-finding one color fabric for my sashing that would work with every block. It just wasn't happening! I think it is a common problem with a sampler quilt. Of course you can borrow my "framing idea"--I am flattered that you like it. :)

    Thanks for the kind words. I think it is the fabrics that give the quilt a warm fuzzy feeling. You can never go wrong with Kansas Troubles.

    I wish I had some great ideas for the quilting. I am going to tackle each block individually and find inspiration in some of the books I have purchased with quilt patterns in them. I am not good at free motion quilting at all, so I do know that my borders will be a grid of some kind. I will post again when I have it finished---but don't be holding your breath, because it is not going to be any time real soon! :)

    Oh My Marcia

    It's stunning then I knew it would be - love all the framing & borders you've added to. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh KT fabris you just can't beat them.
    I have my fabric to do mine too may have a go over the next few weeks if I can get motivated.

    What about echo quilting in some of your blocks? I'm still working on some of My pioneer blocks and that's what I am considering doing.
