    I have learnt so much during the making of this sampler quilt...it has been a journey to remember :D

    I started off making the blocks all by hand in the English paper piece style, then progressed to machine piecing, foundation piecing and applique. I have stitched in the ditch, echo quilted and free motioned!!

    I made the templates for the swags and hearts border myself, as this quilt just evolved without any patterns to follow....phew!!!!!

    Tonight we will sleep under it :-)

    Thanks everyone...you have all supported me and taught me so much during this venture :D

    I really feel quite happy AND sad somehow that it is finished :? :roll:

    I am going to make two pillow shams to match it though, as I like to use two dress pillows so not quite finished yet with these fabrics :lol:

    Sampler quilts are my very favorite. And pink is "MY" color. This is a beautiful quilt. If it took you two years, your efforts are certainly rewarded. It's stunning!

    Thanks Sara, I know the colours look pinkish in the pictures, but overall they are shades of terracotta and creams :D
