Saturday Sampler

This is the final block of the Saturday Sampler that I was doing from Leah's Quilt Gallery. Unfortunately, it will be the last Saturday sampler. Leah's is closing. This quilt shop is dear to my heart. It is where I took my first quilt class. This is also the place I met the other two Amigos, Karene and Joy. There are so many ladies I have met there that I can call a friend, I cannot begin to name them.





I decided I should crop all my blocks and add a sashing to them. I didn't buy the finishing kit because I wasn't all that crazy about it.
Then I added the final border. I think it may be a bit wide, I may crop an inch or two off before I pin baste it. Tomorrow I will piece my backing, a nice mottled green flannel. I will also get my binding ready.

Wasn't that last block fun! I just finished mine and immediately came down to see what you were up to! It is GORGEOUS! I love it! I'm in the process of putting the green sashing/outer triangles on my squares.....and it's getting really exciting!

I too will miss Leah's! We must hold frequent "Janet's Class Reunions!"

Sorry to hear about your quilt shop closing. It's sad to hear of another hangout closing.

I love what you've done with your blocks. You're quilt is lovely.
