    My Loyal Union Sampler Quilt.

    I have finally finished my quilt.
    It has taken me a while and I am pleased with the result. I made this quilt as a Block of the Week, which was so nice to make it with like minded people. The quilt is from a book of the same name by Jennifer Chiaverini ( author of Elm Creek books ) and I had it quilted with a LA company here in the UK. It measures 84" x 84".

    What a work of art! I am not sure I could have stayed with that program! I am known to procrastinate a bit. You must be thrilled!

    That's exquisite! Many happy hours went into making that one, I'd guess!

    Wow! I love it! So much time, work and artistic talent went into that...
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.
