This time I think I will feature my Sampler quilt that I designed for a class at Tiny Stitches. The purpose of the quilt is to introduce more advanced blocks and techniques to students who have learned the basics. It is a large lap sized quilt when completed as I did.
It features some of my favorite blocks, including a grandmothers flower (it isn’t actually a flower garden with one flower).
I also loved the spool block but the students, not so much.
Some of the blocks I designed and some I got from EQ7. I used a white on white background and 9 batik fabrics for the blocks, plus the sashing/border and cornerstones. One regret is that the cornerstones don’t show up enough. I wish they had more contrast.
It was fun making and designing the quilt and I am enjoying teaching the class.
The quilt is approximately 60 x 72 inches.
Techniques include EPP, hand applique as well as standard piecing
Designed, pieced and quilted by me
