Dessert Sampler All Quilted Up!

3 comments by Christine Lux

Hey there!

I hope you've been having fun getting your Dessert Sampler blocks made and sewn together. I was so excited when I got my top finished - what a sense of accomplishment to see all those HSTs all together! :)

I sent my quilt off to Julie at Creekside Quilting. Julie has quilted several of my quilts for me and she always does a great job with a great turnaround time, too. And ... she's willing to trim my quilts up to if I want her to, which is something I love. 

I sent Julie a few different pantograph options, but ultimately settled on this Moulin Rouge one by Urban Elementz. With so many types of blocks and angles, I thought something a little swirly might be fun. (The original sample shown at Quilt Market was done in loops similar to this one.)  

I used this wide back for the backing and the quilting shows up so well on the back, too!

All I have left to do is to attach my binding and stitch it down. :)

Thank you so much for sewing along with me!
