Sugar Block Sampler Quilt

Here's another one by my favorite quilt blogger, Amy Gibson of Stitchery Dickory Dock.  I just can't get enough of her gorgeous stuff!  It's modern but so classic too.

This pattern was released one block at a time, over a full calendar year.  It's 2013's pattern but of course, these things take time, and it's just now been finished and snuggled up with (by humans and felines alike).

Samplers aren't usually my thing but I loved getting a new pattern each month and then taking the opportunity to really work on free-motion quilting!  As you can see, I tried to do something completely different on each block. 

I'd been dying to do these feathers forever and this was the perfect quilt for it.

A lovely paper-pieced star on the back really helps to bring all these colors together.

The best part?  It gets to stay here with me!  I don't make many quilts just for me :)
