Nana: I think it turned out pretty good.
I actually did do some quilting today. I made some more of the wonky log cabin blocks. I am thinking of doing 12 so I can have 3 across and 4 down with some sashing between. Unless I get so caught up in doing these that I end up with a tent size like Nana. :o)
Nana your Bridal Sample quilt is fantastic
Thanks Marge and Elizabeth. I had fun making this one. And Marge this one isn't a tent. Just your basic queen size...LOL>

What an amazing quilt! I have a friend who likes to work on quilts like this. I sent her a picture of your quilt and the link to the web page for the book. She sent back that she was currently working on this very quilt. You have done a wonderful job and to have hand quilted it!! Goodness.
Thanks Gini. Have you completed yours yet? I remember you have the quilt top partially together.
Thanks. Your friend will have fun working on this. It is a great way to "get your feet wet" with all the different piecing techniques.
nana, the top is all together, i'm going to swap out one of the blocks with an extra i have. i need to decide on a border, and i haven't decided if i am going to hand quilt it or have it quilted. until i decide, it will be a ufo.
Nana, just when I think you can't top the last quilt, you do,It's beautiful and handquilted too.
Very nice quilt, Nana!
I usually use a neutral for lighter fabrics such as gray, beige. I switch to a darker thread on darker fabrics such as dark gray. Appliques require matching threads.
WOW! Beautiful quilt and hand quilted, too! Two thumbs up!
Nana, your sampler is beautiful! I tried to zoom in to see the quilting, but it got blurry.
