Cindy's Sampler Quilt
Earlier this month I requilted Cindy's baby quilt. This entry is a picture of the previous quilt I made for her. It was a few years in the making. I finished it completely last summer during some free time in which I finished several UFOs. From top to bottom, left to right, the blocks are: 1. Reversed Squares, using a quick piecing technique I thought up. 2. Scraps from a project at my old guild, the Herring Run Quilters' Guild in Hanover, Massachusetts. 3. Scraps from a pillow I made for my mother-in-law. 4. Blue Penrose tiles, given a pink Penrose tile setting (because it is the pink part of the quilt). 5. A big Penrose tiling. 6. My favorite block - a one patch of second generation leftovers from a watercolor quilt. 7. A block exchange with a woman from France, who solicited blocks in Quilters' Newsletter magazine. 8 & 9. Same as 2. 10. Hmong squares and nine-patches that were part of a guild exchange. 11. Butterfly batiks (Cindy's favorite block). 12. Five Penrose tiles. 13. A copy of the block I traded with the French woman. 14. A sawtooth star experiment. 15. Another Penrose tiling. 16. Copy of a guild raffle block - everyone would bring in a block, and one lucky person would take them all home. I wanted a copy in case I didn't win. Which I didn't, that time!
