A sampling we will go..........................
Welcome and happy Friday (or Thursday depending where in the world you are!) Today's post is all about the sampler quilt Patsy made for granddaughter.
It seems every couple of years one of Patsy's grandchildren turn 21, so for months before the big day Patsy is all ' head down and foot to the pedal'! Each grandchild is asked , if Patsy doesn't already know what their favourite colour is, this becomes the sashing and border colour the rest of the quilt is made up from black and white fabrics.
There are doilies and family photographs that all come together into a lovely sampler quilt.
Often the background quilting is dictated by the fabrics.
So often these quilts become a 'sampler-of-quilting' also.
Patsy likes a backing fabric that shows off the quilting, she also makes a label that everyone at the 21st birthday party can sign. To see some previous blog posts of Patsy's other sampler quilts see *here* and *here*
Last photo of the quilt on my machine all ready to go. Thank you Patsy!
