Thinking About … Samplers
I still haven’t discovered the critical sewing room box (with scissors, needles, rulers …) so, at the moment, I can only think about quilting. When I noticed the bundle of fabric I put aside to make a row quilt from this year’s lotto blocks in one of the boxes that wasn’t the critical box I was looking for, I started telling myself, it’s not too late to start a sampler quilt … now I am telling you. If you have been making extra blocks or think you might like to start, here’s another sampler layout idea – for a 63-inch throw.
For this quilt, you’d need two each of the square blocks and one each of the long ones. The dark blocks represent the five future, not-yet-revealed lotto blocks. The sashing and inner border are 2 1/4-inch wide. The outer border is 4 1/2-inches wide (and could be made from more of the long blocks if you happened to like one of them).
My plan is to start working on (and blogging about) my sampler quilt in August … anyone want to join me?
