. . . sampler . . .

. . . our little quilt group met monthly in 2008 . . .
. . . we taught/learned a different block at each meeting . . .
. . . the goal was to have a finished project 
by the end of the year . . .
. . . a drive-by show was held 
to display our handiwork . . .
. . . sadly, my quilt was not in any shape 
to be viewed at that time . . .
. . . i have since rectified that situation . . .
. . . the nine blocks have names 
and the patterns are free . . .
left to right/top to bottom: 
. . . each block was framed . . .
. . . then came sashings and cornerstones . . .
. . . another frame . . .
. . . and a border of scrappy squares . . .
. . . one final border and polka dot cornerstones . . .
. . . expert machine quilting . . .
. . . a scrappy binding . . .
. . . and now it looks pretty awesome 
in my living room . . .
. . . finally . . .
