    A Sampler Quilt

    I just completed this quilt this week after working on it for about 6 years. I used this as a travel quilt. I would cut out the pieces at home and take them to retreats or sew days at friends houses to sew. The size of this quilt is 64" x 80". The name "From my heart to your hands" by Lori Smith.

    What a beautiful sampler. I love sampler quilts and I especially like them when different size blocks are used with no sashing. Yours shows that you took your time and you did a marvelous job.
