Holy Heck Harry, it’s done. And it’s a finish-along for the first quarter of 2016. Here is my link to my original finish along list
I finally finished my Simple Sampler Summer Blockbuster quilt. I pieced it it last summer but it took me quite a while to hand quilt it because, well just because.
Isn’t it lovely. it’s very scrappy with 6 inch blocks …. Sounds sorta like the Splendid Sampler quilt along that I’m starting on Valentine’s Day.
Before you go, I have to point out the Magic Binding on this baby….All done by machine, front and back with faux piping and everything. You might notice how I didn’t take pictures of the corners because they didn’t turn out very well. Live and Learn so they say. For now I’m just really pleased that it’s done.
I found the pattern here on the Color Girl Quilts blog, which is written by Sharon McConnell. I love love love her style. This is the second quilt-along I did with her guidance (the first was her Twirling Fans quilt, which I call Ninja Stars…check hers out here and then see mine here on Instagram…or just look at it over there on my sidebar).
Someday I swear I’m going to make her Polka Dot Bikini quilt! Ok that might be just a little past my skill level ever will be. See what I mean.
