It's A Sampler

Had nice morning light to snap a couple pictures of the Second Ever Quilt Top - It's A Sampler.... 

Here are some pictures of creation of some Nine Patch Blocks... and Nine Patch Variations.

The colors are so bright and cheery......  I really learned a lot about matching seams.  

Here is the design wall.... (Some of the blocks did not make it into the final quilt top)  I had fun with all the different blocks for this sampler - Friendship Star, Flying Geese, Nine Patch, Pinwheel and the beloved Log Cabin...... Here is a close-up... Oh Yes. I love the focus fabric. I used it for cornerstones in the purple sashing.

Here is the Second Ever Quilt Top - It's A Sampler......

I am so happy with this quilt top because I learned so many techniques.... Almost a little sad to be done with the top, except I have started a Mystery Quilt Class.  Pure trust because I have no idea what the Third Ever Quilt Top - It's A Mystery will look like except for this.....

I do love rusts, yellows and fall leaves.... The first instruction was to cut, cut, cut and cut fabric..... Now I am working on the second set of instructions - sewing strips and cutting, sewing and cutting....  

Yesterday, I went on a Shop Hop.  So MUCH FUN!  I bought more fabric... Oh my....  I understand all the talk I heard when I started this journey about a new addiction.  So Funny.

Next Saturday is more Shop Hop, so I must go and sew, cut, sew and cut on the Mystery Quilt.  


  1. I really should try my hand at a little quilting! It's one thing I never do. Thanks for your inspiration....and for your sweet comment.

  2. So very nice. You must have worked for so long on much cutting and sew much sewing!

    We have a lot in the Shuswap where we keep our RV. It is in a resort community and I go to quilting every Wednesday (in the summer) at the adult clubhouse...all the other ladies quilt but I make cards...I love to look at quilts in their various stages.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment..... I love hearing from you....
