White on White Sampler

Quilt # 47

White on White Sampler

I always wanted to make a white on white quilt using very subtle variations of white, off-white and beige.

I made all the blocks from Block of the Month patterns offered by our guild probably around 2006.

I designed the quilt on graph paper setting the blocks randomly in a grid of squares.

A one inch border framing the 12” blocks were a good fit for the 3½“ x 3½“ squares.
