Saturday Sampler has been one of my favorite quilt shop activities for years. Some of the projects were easy and some were challenging. Some of the projects were designs that I loved, and some were not. Some were projects I finished right away because I knew just where that quilt needed to go, and others became UFOs. Some years I made 2 sets of blocks with a second set coming from my stash.
This Saturday Sampler was challenging, but nothing I couldn't handle. I loved the pieced blocks in both large and small sizes, but wasn't sure I wanted them mixed in with the applique blocks. There were also several gingerbread people blocks (very cute), and some wording blocks. I decided to keep the gingerbread blocks for a separate project. But I did include the floral blocks in this quilt. I hand appliqued these, which was fairly time intensive.
The finished quilt is about 65" x 70". I think this may be more of a display quilt, instead of a "curl up on the couch" kind of quilt.
