ABC Sampler Part Two

The second section of the ABC Sampler quilt is complete and added to the first section.  The pattern set I am using is by Cheri Payne.  Myself and Lori from Humble Quilts are doing this as a sew-along.  A great way to keep on track with actually completing a quilt project.


The girls design was meant to be a template block or maybe paper piecing.  Instead, I chose to do applique.  A fun block to stitch.

And here is a picture of the first two sections sewn together.  Again, the little basket block on the bottom was mean to be pieced template form but I did it with applique.


Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

I was lucky to have taken this class from Cheri herself in late 1990s- early 2000's. It hangs in my stairwell and I see it everyday as I go up and down the stairs. As Cheri would say ...... Enjoy.
