I finished quilting my sampler blocks, got them joined together, and now I'm quilting the sashing between the blocks. I have 3 done and 37 to go, so that will take a while, but I do want to get it finished.
I started this quilt in 1986, and it's been on hold for a long time. It's all hand pieced and hand quilted. Believe it or not, I actually have quilts older than that I haven't finished. One at a time is my new motto. I still need borders on this, but I'm not sure what kind or if any at this point--we'll see. It's about 82 inches square now. I know the names of all the blocks except one. The first one on the left, on row two from the top is my mystery block.
From the top left: Row one: Drunkards path, Storm at sea, Honey bee, and Churn dash.
Row two: MYSTERY BLOCK, Order number 11, Ohio star, and Star and crescent.
Row three: Dresden plate, Turkey tracks, Tulip wheel, and Bear's paw.
Row four: Eight point star, Stamp baskets, Grandmother's flower garden, and Double nine patch.
