Monday design floor.....

Gay released the last set of the 1857 Sampler blocks on Saturday. It has been a 18 month journey that I have tried to follow along with. I believe 68 blocks were released in total but I am stopping my journey at 36 and adding the border. It should produce a 72x72 quilt if my calculations are correct.

It looks like I have one block needing peels and 13 border blocks to go before I can sew this one together into a top.

It sounds like she has a summer sew along starting that is piecing and then another appliqué one planned for January. Head on over to sentimental to find out about them.


  1. Love your quilt top and love the colors-
    I don't know who Gay is so can't look up her future projects!?
    enjoy the moments, di

  2. Very pretty - Anxious to see it completed!

  3. Ohmygosh--this one is so lovely...I love that border that you're adding...
    I am starting my applique journey slowly with one big piece...maybe someday I can attempt a quilt like yours...hugs, Julierose

  4. It's awfully pretty. Happy 4th July!

  5. Love this top - it makes me happy to see it in Mardi Gras colors!
