Sampler Quilt

I don't think my clients Sampler Quilt could have match my carpet any better!!  It looked great in my livingroom but unfortunately I had to give it back :(   That is the down side of this job...seeing the quilts leave after bonding with them for a few days.  Actually seeing my clients face when I showed it to her for the first time made it all worthwhile.  I love that feeling when you know you got it right!  I must admit I did sweat a bit about this one as it was hand appliqued with a button hole stitch so a lot of time was spent on the piecing.    The piecer shared a cute story about how her sister thought the applique in the border looks like bunnies...I would have to agree with her sister, that is all I saw when working on the quilting.  So of course I had to quilt a bunny in this quilt!


  1. DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! Congrats to both your client and you. Manificient work on both your parts. I really do hope that this quilt is one your client is keeping for herself after all the handwork she invested in its creation. A
