Here's some photos of Judy's Sampler Quilt. A "sampler" quilt is constructed of a collection of blocks in different patterns, usually with no pattern repeated. So, I armed myself with Deloa Jones' book "Sampler Solutions", my new favorite ruler - the Rope-a-dope, Deloa's Castle and Boomerang and jumped in! Here's the result -

This was quite a challenge for me - trying new ideas and techniques. I had so much fun doing this - well, not the same kind of fun as my "girlfriend time" last week in London, Ontario - but you get the idea! Let me know what you think . . . .
Now that the creative juices were flowing, I challenged myself again with the wild colored quilt called "Mod Squad". In keeping with the sixties theme of the fabric, I figured flowers and loops would be appropriate - and of course, freehand. The bright "Glide" thread looks great against the black borders - one with a ribbon design - and the outer border in "piano keys". Man, am I having fun, dude!!!

I wonder what Pete, Julie and Linc would think of this - if your old enough to remember ......
....... until next time "peace, man" from the Little House . . .
