Folk Art Sampler with borders and blocks

I sewed today and put the Folk Art Sampler top together. My first scrappy blocks quilt. It fits this double bed very well.
I have found design inspiration from many artists patterns and Quilter Blogs.com. I combined all my favorites along with my favorite fan block. As I study the top laid out on the bed I think I will add more applique, first I will connect the vines on my border corners and design from there.
 I have been thinking of redoing this bedroom for years. This quilt might just be my inspiration for a big project after Christmas.
I always need a project for winter


  1. Oh I just love it on the bed too, Colleen! Love your mini schnauzer girls too! Hugs and feel better, Mary
