Yesterday I went to the quilt show at Sauder Village in Archbold, Ohio. It was a great way to spend a day! My mother-in-law, my 7 year old and I enjoyed the beautiful quilts and a fabulous lunch together. Quilt shows are really good at helping to keep me inspired to work on the projects I have, fix problem projects or begin new projects.
Today the sampler quilt, from what seems like a million years ago, was the project of the day. The quilting is nearly finished and then it needs a binding. That means that it moves to a different pile to wait for the binding to be sewn on and finished.
I quilted each of the sampler blocks 1/4 inch in from the seams. I wanted to be able to see the blocks.
In the sashing and the cornerstone blocks I quilted 1/4 inch from each seam allowance. It has a neat effect at the cornerstones where the lines intersect.
It looks really cool from the backside too!
The pictures are a not quite what I wanted them to be, but my camera killed it's batteries, so I have to make do with my husband's until I get to the store.
Overall a productive week, let's hope for a repeat.
