Advanced Sampler

Another BOM project by teacher, Iessie Steenberg, worked on during the last part of 2006 and 2007. This time we made use of the Quilt-as-u-go technique which meant the quilt could be finished shortly after we received the last block pattern.

Surely one of the nicest projects I've worked on thus far.

Mauritian Challenge

Left: Orginal fabric
Right: Completed quilt

In May 2006 all the members of the Quiltmakers got 12 identical floral pictures on a piece of fabric with the challenge to "make a quilt" - no rules, no size and no instructions given. At first I was not supposed to participate but then some members resigned and I got a piece of fabric as well and not being able to think around a rectangle I just couldn't get started.

We were all supposed to have these quilts finished by November 2007 and as time ran out, I decided on something easy and chose log cabin variations to start with and the quilt grew with each completed block until I was able to finish it. Although not very practical with all the 3 D flowers it came out rather nice.
