2009 Saturday Sampler

I finally put together my blocks from the 2009 Saturday Sampler. The title of the series was "My Favorite Things", but I will admit this wasn't my favorite Saturday Sampler.

Every block was done with 2 1/2 inch strips, and I chose the "dippin dots" colorway. The blocks are kind of whimsical, so I decided it would make a good kids' quilt.

The sashing is dots too. Then I found a remnant of a large dot fabric. There was only 1 yard, which was not quite enough. So I used the extra pieces that I cut for the sashing and pieced the back.

I think it was be pretty cute once it's quilted. I hope to find a weekend when I can get over to Sylvia's to use her Q Bot to quilt a couple of tops I've finished lately. Probably won't happen until after the April wedding, but that's OK too.
