Cindy's Stunning Sampler

I just have to say - I love this quilt!!!  My quilting friend Cindy made this for her daughter - and I sure hope she is pleased with the final quilting results!  :)  It is soooo beautiful.  I love the traditional sampler blocks mixed with a very modern feeling is just soooo my taste in color and blocks all the way around!!!  :)

Cindy is known for making large quilts - and this one did not disappoint!  88" by 110" I believe were the dimensions?  HUGE.  :)


I was very proud of finding a thread that looked good on the front and the back!  Both the aqua and green blended right into the backing fabric.  I used Hobbs 80/20 batting for this and Glide Thread.


Wheew!  I have another heavy intense custom to work on next, but in my down time I'm hoping to make some progress on my next attempt at a show quilt and Disney dresses.  I have sewing sewing and then more sewing to do!!!  :)  I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!  :)

You have gotten so good at being able to "divide up" space on a quilt to create interesting secondary designs with your quilting. Really nice job!
