It’s Incredible (that I finished it!)

I have STARTED a lot of sampler quilts made from lotto blocks … but most are still unfinished and only one was finished in the same year as we made the blocks.




Mod-Mod-Sampler_Detail_JeanSophieWoodThe lighting is less than optimal–I slid the stand under one of the skylights in the studio … just as I was losing the light.

This is the Full/Queen-size with 7-inch plain borders for a finished size of 96-inches square.

Here’s a close up of the quilting by my long-armer friend. It has a wool batting in it which really seems to make the quilting pop.

Somehow with everything that was going on this weekend, I managed to get it trimmed and bound.


  1. OMG!! That is beautiful. I wish I had started at the beginning of the year so I could have made one too.

  2. Sophie, it’s gorgeous! And good on you for actually getting it done in the same year (I wonder how that feels? :-)). You’ve done a lovely job, and your quilter has really complemented your hard work.

  3. Wow, Sophie! That is just gorgeous! I love the colors and the arrangements. That’s quilt-show quality stuff! LOVE the quilting too. Kudos to your longarmer.

  4. Oh Wow that is beautiful Sophie! Your vision, awes me! Wonderful design and lovely work. Sophie Kudos to you! (I think the ‘S’ in Sophie is also for Superwoman)

  5. Spectacular! I love the quilt and the quilting is great! Now I’m inspired to finish mine, but I just started on the Bonnie Hunter mystery so this one may have to wait until the New Year. 😉

  6. Wow!!!!! Love how it turned out!!!!! Now I am sorry I didn’t make all the blocks this year.

  7. I generally do not like sampler quilts. But this one is amazing! You outdid yourself here girl! It is AAMAZING!

    Are you home yet?

  8. It is really incredible! From the block design to the color choices you pulled together a work of art. And you are so lucky to have a longarm quilter who compliments your creation so well. Congratulations on such an awesome accomplishment!

  9. Wow! THat’s lovely Sophie! I’m sorry to have let my plans slide on this one now. 😛 I made the first blocks but lost interest. The quilting is wonderful too. Quilting does make a quilt often times.

  10. Love it! So pretty.

  11. Very excellent in all aspects!

  12. It’s an fabulous quilt, Sophie!
