    Saturday Sampler finished

    Name:  IMG_8696.JPG

Size:  47.1 KBThis was last year's Saturday Sampler at our local shop. I enjoyed putting it together except for those little pieces on the sashings. Won't be doing that again! I did some straight line quilting but practiced my FMQ on most of it. There is a big different between FMQ on a sample piece and doing it on a big quilt. I used my Brother PQ1500 Nouvelle and we have come to terms about thread breaking so it was mostly fun. I also used one of those flying carpet sleds instead of my Supreme Slider and liked it a whole lot more. It is bigger and covers up the place in the table where there is a gap (I have a table and no insert). I'm halfway through this year's Saturday Sampler but I'm going to hand quilt that one.

    Lovely designs in the squares and your color choices are so well coordinated. I am glad you rose to the challenge of the sashing-it is beautiful with the squares.

    Beautiful! Love the colors. I find it hard to do sampler quilts...can never figure out what fabrics to use. You did a great job!

    Really beautiful quilt! Lovely colors. I think it's the same quilt that Pam the podcast lady made too. She's talked about it in her podcasts.
