Sampler completion

Okay, you have seen all the block pictures in previous posts. The top is completed as of last evening but I waited to take the picture till this morning.

Amazing how long that process can take and how it leads to vacuuming two rooms and the hallway just to clean up after doing it. The living room still needs it from all the thead tracking and hauling the top in to show DJ. Pippi is hanging out there so I'm not dragging out the "kitty eating machine" just yet.

I'll need to purchase the backing and maybe some ultrawhite batting before this can be pinned but it is closer to done than it has been for some time.

So today, back to assembling some WTIL tops after I run a couple of errands this morning. Our next meeting is on the 13th so I will try to get a couple more together for pinning by then. There goes the clean floor, LOL but do I care? Posted by Picasa


  1. Looks great and certainly big enough to cover that big mattress. I especially like the 'floating blocks'.
    BTW, I am trying the sq'n sq for the pinwheels but I know I did hour glass and pierced border for the cat quilt after I have had time to think about it. I told you I did it the hard way! lol

  2. Morning LInda, all I can say is WOW!!! The top is spectacular! I repeat that it's probably the most attractive sampler I've seen *VBS*

    Meant to tell you the other day, I love headboard, on that bed. Is it a Jenny Linn style??? It's looks very old fashioned, love it!

    So happy the sampler is to this point, and you get to sew some WTIL tops. Hugs, Finn

  3. Oh Linda it's sooo beautiful! The colors are so perfect together and I think you did a great job putting it all together.

    You also reminded me of something when you said crisp white batting...I normally use Warm and Natural...but my Aunt Betty is like this and I guess I hadn't thought about needing to get warm and WHITE!! Thanks!!

    Forget the strings and little pieces, quilters always walk around with strings on them. Why are all cats so afraid of the vaccumn??

  4. woohoo! nice completion of your top LJ! I like how it turned out.

  5. I can't believe how fast you are! I am out of breath from just trying to keep up to reading what you do, let alone doing as much as you do! Way to go. You are my inspiration!

  6. I am so so excited to see this done up into a top!!! Congrats! It is so pretty...love our 30's, don't we!?!?!

  7. Congratulations on the finished quilt top :-) Your quilt looks so nice !
