Saturday Sampler Quilt – Finished!

This might be my longest in-progress quilt! I don’t really want to look to figure it out, so we’ll call it that.

My local quilt store does two Saturday Sampler quilts every year – pieced and applique. Basically, you buy the pattern and get every block free as long as you show up for the monthly demonstration. I wasn’t a big fan of the fabric, but I like free, so I signed up in January 2011.

Some of the blocks gave me headaches, but I learned super-accurate piecing with all the bits in each one!


I bought the panel with the fabric line instead of the finishing kit and made it my own, placing everything on point around the center medallion from the original pattern. {The cat also put his special stamp on it.}
I did not, ahem, intend for the words to face in and out on the medallion. I discovered the error too late to contemplate swapping it, though.
I adore all the cream. Obviously not appropriate for my house, with the kid and the black cat. But it’s going to my mother-in-law so I think she can manage to keep it clean!

The binding is piped, via this method. I love how it looks…hate the process of making the piping…attaching it to the binding…all before the normal binding!

And now I have to figure out what to do with the scraps and leftovers! {I’m kidding. Tons of 1.5″ strips in there. Obviously a log cabin!}

Size: 64″ square
Fabric: Wildflower Rhapsody by Timeless Treasures
Pattern: BOM by Wing and a Prayer {and me!}
Quilted by Paula

Lovely! Congrats – you’ve worked so hard on this one! Cool addition of the piping – I can only imagine how tedious that must have done. BUT it’s finished and looked wonderful!

Woo hoo, Kate! Wonderful finish! Love those colours and the writing. That’s definitely a TGIFF! Thanks for linking up!

Beautiful! Congrats on the finish. If I remember correctly, this one caused you a few headaches in working out the setting, so it must feel really good to have it work out so beatifully.

Kate!!! It’s so gorgeous!! I really, really love the floral backing and the binding is absolute perfection for the quilt. Well worth the effort. I’ve got to try that piped binding on something.
