sampler blocks are now a quilt

Most of these blocks were made in a class I went to throughout 2006, where we were given one pattern a month, plus the fabrics.  If we made up the block and took it back the next month we were given the next block makings free, otherwise we had to pay $5 for it.  I have added a few extra blocks  to make this quilt.

It has ended up big enough for using on a queen sized bed.  I didnt expect it to be so big when I started.  I did it as a quilt as you go.
(the prairie points are on the quilt underneath, they certainly are not the right colour for the top quilt).

This quilt is heading off to Chookyblue for the Caring with Quilts collection.

That quilt is fantastic. It is great when you end up with a big/useful quilt and you didn't notice it happening. There will be a very happy person (or persons) who receive this one.

Quilt as you go? What exactly does that mean? This is absolutely beautiful.

That certainly is a big quilt, Marilyn. Lovely blocks and what a nice way to offer a Block of the Month. I love the pillow sham? that I am spying. Maureen

Beautiful quilt! After looking at the first picture I was surprised to see how large it actually is on a bed. Wonderful finish!
