I just didn't get what all the hype was about??
This was my FIRST real sampler quilt and I am HOOKED/Totally IN LOVE!!!
Full Size Quilt 50" x 60"
Mini Quilt 18" x 24"
Not completely sure what changed, but here's why I LOVED this project:
1. It was really enjoyable to look at the fabrics together and pick and choose what I wanted to use where.
2. It was Manageable and Kept my Interest. It was easy to set a small goal for a block and feel the satisfaction when completing it. I'd pull the fabrics in the morning, cut blocks during naptime and sew when everyone was in bed:) When you actually take 10 MINUTES here and there, things get done in a jiffy:)
3. There were a lot of spots where scraps or charm squares worked. SO, if I just had a little bit, it could still be included. I enjoyed fussy cutting.
4. The small blocks were challenging. It was fulfilling to know that I could make something that small and make it well. I "practiced" on the larger blocks so my piecing would be more accurate on the small blocks...lots of tips and tricks along the way!!
5. The book I chose blocks from has 501 designs, so I can make sampler blocks until the cows come home;)
