My first sampler is done

Take a look at this patriotic beauty.

This is a beautiful quilt, well-pieced and good fabrics.
The batting is Hobbs 80/20. My first time with Hobbs,too. It was scratchy and thin. I didn't like it much. I spent about 2.5 hours designing the blocks. I used several stencils and blue pounce chalk. It was a lot of work. I kept track of my time with this one. I spent 18 hours and 5 minutes stitch time.

I love this quilt. The quilting on it is beautiful.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
