12 months of work into 1 quilt

 the challenge as i see it

 last year when i signed up for the FMQ challenge sponsored by sewcalgal i decided that all my lessons would be made into a small quilt using a quilt as you go method to join them all together...so i cut all the practice pieces 10 by 10 to give me room to trim and then join the sandwiches together...i cut strips to give me 1 inch sashing between the blocks...used up some of my scraps for these bright and cheery sashes
finished dimensions are 34 by 43...a bright and cheery piece to remember the work and FUN i had learning to FMQ much better then i had before excepting the challenge...it is off to hang in to collection room of our local hospital...

What a wonderful FMQ sampler quilt. A great way to show off your FMQ skills. You did a fantastic job and I love the colors and how you pieced these sample blocks together. What a treasure.
