Brenda's Sampler Quilt

I finally finished this one. It was interrupted by the roof leak in the studio. The blocks are 24 inches. I used some Helen Squires stencils and the new Bohin white lead pencil. I love this pencil, the lead does not break or crumble. It has an eraser which removes the marks. I sprayed the marks then wiped with a piece of muslin and most of the marks came off. This is my new favorite marker on dark fabric. I got it at Suzanne Earley's shop . I used Quilter's Dream deluxe cotton batting.

what a wonderful quilt...
really well done

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.
