Patchsmith Sampler Quilt

I have been waiting for nice weather to take some pictures of the finished Patchsmith Sampler Quilt.  Unfortunately, it is still raining here in England!  But I can't wait a moment longer .......
Complete with a scrap happy border.
I used left over scraps from fabrics used elsewhere in the quilt to make the scrap-happy border.  It pulls all the blocks together to create a unified quilt.

The scrappy border couldn't be any easier.

The blocks were created using some of my favourite fabrics from my stash and scrap box.  After all - that is what sampler quilts are all about - using what you have.

So many favourite blocks

Every time I look at the quilt I see a favourite block and then another and then another.  Here I love the cactus, the moonlit star, the ladybird, the beehive - oh heck - I just love them all.

Can you see the Saltbox House?  I would love to live there1
If you want to have a closer look at each and every block then click on the Patchsmith Sampler Blocks tab above.  You will find a photo of each block and, if you click on the photo, you will go through to the blog post for that block.  You will find hints and tips and some cool ways to use the blocks together with bonus blocks.

Combine Block 9 'Bullseye' with Block 17 'London Roads' for a fun mug rug
The blocks don't have to be made into a quilt - they are great in all sorts of projects.  So head on over to Amazon and grab yourself a copy of The Patchsmith's Sampler Quilt pattern book.

Until next time ......
