Sampler Quilt

In September 2008 I started a block a month workshop so I could learn some quilting skills. This is the resulting sampler quilt. I was intending to use it as a lap quilt but after using such expensive Japanese fabric it is now displayed as a wall hanging. I just couldn't bear the thought of the children destroying it!
I love the colours and textures of the fabric and was so pleased with the end result.
The quilt uses lots of different techniques; applique, paper piecing etc done by both hand and machine.
The quilt is hand quilted, although not as heavily as the cot quilt.
