Isn't that Dutch Rose quilt block above beautiful? It's my favorite block in the quilt that I finished up on the longarm this week. My mom pieced the top following the Modern Sampler QAL (quilt-a-long) pattern that can be found at Elven Garden Quilts. Some of the gals down at the Little Foot Quilt Shoppe were working on this project. She didn't quite finish all of the blocks there, but the ones she did make fit together perfectly.
I quilted it with a pantograph called Daydream using cream colored thread.
Here are a few other close-up shots of some blocks.
I just love those blocks! They all seem pretty traditional for a "modern" sampler. I think maybe it's just the setting style of the blocks that is modern. Just above on the right side - there's that Cat's Cradle unit that inspired my little wall hanging a few weeks ago.
This quilt is being donated to a fundraiser to help a family in need in our church and community. So Mom is getting the binding on it this weekend. Way to go, Mom, and great job on the piecing!! (Great job rotary cutting, Dad :-)
I'll have to get something new on the quilt frame tomorrow. Hope you get some quilting in this weekend, too! I'll be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts Finish It Up Friday. Thanks for visiting!
This is me...
I LOVE to quilt, and every day I must sew for my sanity!
