Finally! I have completed my sampler quilt top from Modify Tradition Round 1. This top sat in a drawer for quite a long time, ignored and forgotten, and-- dare I say-- unloved!
I like it much more having seen it sewn together. I didn't love my blocks from the first round-- I blame that one some of the fabric choices I made. But, the money was spent, and starting over would be costly, so I continued with the original plan.
The quilt top is quite large-- 90"x90". That is why the picture is so terrible; even Josh couldn't hold it up so I could see the whole thing.
I set my blocks in four rows of three, with wide horizontal sashing. The rows alternate justification to the left and right and overlap just a bit in the middle. Fabrics include some Robert Kaufman Carolina Chambrays; the background fabric, in particular, comes from this fabric line.
Thankfully, I have several 50% coupons from Joann's, and so I will be purchasing several yards of fabric and batting for this quilt. I have decided to undertake the perilous task of quilting this myself. It will be my largest self-quilted project to date. We will see how that goes...
