I am working on this top right now, Afew blocks gave me grey hair,but I managed to get 16 blocks done. Sashing and borders next. It is a great sampler quilt. But more importantly, I learn a lot of history in the process.

I absolutely love this book! I've got 9 blocks made and now just need to decide which 3 to choose from to finish it up. I do have to say that it forced me out of my "comfort zone" to use fabrics that will make it more authentic looking, but now I'm hooked on them. I can't wait till I can finish this one up.

I originally got this book for Christmas one year from my step daughter..we used to draw names for Christmas and the next year I got her husbands name, so I made him a lap quilt! I didn't get a picture of it..(that will never happen again! lol!). So I joined the sew along here last year and made the 12" and the 6" at the same time. I still need to put together the 12" one, but I really love this sampler! It did challenge me ALOT, but I learned alot too!

Can't wait to see yours finished Grammie!
