The Ultimate Sampler Quilt....








One of the girls at patchwork took the photo for me today.



..and a closer look.


I love the way this quilt has turned out and if you ever get the chance to put lots of different blocks, colours and sizes together in one quilt, do it! It's amazing how well everything goes together with some juggling and squaring off...


It's a perfect size for a hospital bed or to use as a wrap in a chair, as I said I didn't want to make it too big to go on the bed!


I just have to make the back now, I should be able to get that done this weekend then get it quilted...


These arrived earlier in the week from Meg and Nancy, thanks so much. Did you notice that I have added a page just for the list of fabulous people that have sent blocks..?? The list was getting so long on the side bar I thought it deserved a page of it's own....





Gotta go sew, see you later...
