Quilt # 103
|Shadow Blocks - front|
This sampler was on my UFO Challenge list at Patchwork Times. I completed the top before the end of May which is when the quilt was supposed to be completed, but it wasn't quilted or bound.
But it is now. Has been for a while, just haven't got around to post about it.
My blocks were made while teaching a sampler class. There are still a few stacks of blocks sitting around from more classes.
Here are some close-up of some of the blocks:
|Grandmother's Flower Garden|
|Paper-pieced Summer's Sun|
|Set-in Seam Stripped 8-point Star|
|Star of Hearts|
Since I used the same fabric for the lattice that is in the background of the blocks I added a row of machine embroidery to define the blocks.

|Shadow Blocks - back|
I decided to only use 12 blocks on the front of the quilt but added 3 more to the back and used the Schoolhouse roof as my label.
