The shop hop sampler quilt is still on the design wall but progress is being made! I really like block sampler quilts. They maybe aren't the most beautiful quilts to look at, but they sure are fun to sew.
And I must admit that I love the scrappiness of this one :)
I finally decided on setting the blocks with a star sashing and have been busy sewing the sashing star points using four different gold prints.
The top half of the quilt is sewn together, and I'm working on the bottom half. It is very close to being a finished top, with only one more border to add. However, there is not enough blue left to made that last border from the same fabric.
What to do...buy more, or "make do"?!?!
While working on the star points, I have been sewing a second line on the squares...can you see it here?
I ended up with lots of tiny half square triangles, which told me that they wanted to become flying geese... so cute! I really don't feel like squaring them up, so they will be 'liberated' or 'loosy goosy' blocks! LOL
