    This was a project chosen by my quilt group, and took me 1 year to finish the top. I set it aside many times, but finally came back long enough to get it done

    That's one of my all time favorite sampler quilts! The blocks, colors and fabrics are all so diverse and interesting and work together so well. I love the pieced border, it adds the perfect finishing touch.

    I don't usually care for sampler quilts but I must agree that this is the nicest one I've seen. Great job and congrats on finishing it.

    Ditto what dhanke said. Color choices are outstanding as is the placement of the blocks. Love that pieced border - like icing on a cake - perfect finish. Beautiful.

    Outstanding. It's an inspiration to keep at it with a big project. It's well worth the time and effort.

    Congrats.

    Hi. I'm pretty new to quilting but I really like the sampler. Could you kindly direct me to get a copy of the patterns for the blocks? Appreciate it lots. :)

    By the way, can I do the quilt using the quilt-as-you-go method?

    The first word that came to mind was "Beautiful" and I guess everybody else had that same impression!!
