A modern sampler quilt

How cool is this quilt.  Elisha was very happy to take up the challenge of the sampler quilt, enjoying the different patchwork techniques along the way.  This was certainly given an modern update with the use of Amy Butler fabrics.  Elisha has a great nick name for this great designer… “the butt”.  I am assured that this is meant to be affectionate!

I quilted each block in turn, working with the design of the block and the fabric.  The feathered sashing and piano key border holding it altogether.  My favorite block is the spiral.  Which is yours?

This photo from the back details the quilting.


My brief from Elisha was not too tizzy or too closely quilted.  She was delighted with her quilt so I assume I got it right!

Happy stitching
