This weekend I decided to set together the blocks from my Fat Quarter Shop 2011 Designer Mystery Block of the Month Quilt (Fabric Strawberry Fields by Joanna Figueroa for Moda). As I sewed, I kept thinking that there is just something about sampler quilts…especially those that might take a year to put together.
It’s kind of bittersweet to finish up a project like this…a few months ago when I picked out my sashing post and border fabric, I couldn’t wait to have the last block completed so I could have another finishl
But this weekend there was no rush. I so enjoyed putting the blocks together and savoring the sweetness of fabrics and designs. I remembered thinking how beautiful each block would be back when they arrived. The blocks in this quilt were pieced together over a year’s time…a very busy year for me. I wondered if I had appreciated this quilt the way I should in the mix of all the other projects.
The binding is made, and this quilt will be off to the quilter this morning. I think I’ll take my time sewing the binding on this one.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
