RSC18 Squared Away Sampler Update

The RSC18 Squared Away Sampler quilt is so busy that I don’t think one can tell that it is quilted unless one is looking close.

So I chose to do an all over design as opposed to custom quilting (and it is quicker to do… there is that).

Here is a close up view…it really is quilted!

It might be easier to see quilted bees from the back, but not much easier.

More bow tie leader/enders have been made.  I have taken the time to pack them in packs of 1o for easier counting.  There are 399 plus a few in the basket.  I want to make 768 for the setting that I have in mind.

A personal little shout out to Donna…I think I am doing well so far with my Focus list!  I am keeping an updated version for myself here.

  1. Good job getting it quilted! You’re moving right through that list. I love it that you’re getting a lot done. So fun!


  2. Not all quilting needs to be ‘seen’…it’s best characteristic is in it lending a certain ‘feeling’ to the actual quilt..IMHO.
    Great almost finish…Happy T-day.


  3. Hi Laura! I have to agree with Laura above – quilting isn’t necessarily supposed to be the star of the project. Many times the quilting can distract from the fabrics and pattern – what the point of that?? Holy moly – that’s a lot of bow tie blocks. Good for you for getting a UFO in the done column – that is very inspiring. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. I’m sorry you have to work seven days a week now! That’s nuts. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • You and Laura are right, Roseanne! One does need to consider the quilt’s design and purpose. 🙂

      The bow tie blocks are small, so I need a lot of them to make a full size quilt, which is what I want to do with them.

      At least I don’t have to put in full shifts all seven days! This time of year is tough on a lot of workers, not just USPS workers.

      I have a lot to be grateful for! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, too! 🙂


  4. You are doing great Laura. The sampler is bright – The dot fabric is interesting as a border! Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the day off! Hugs


  5. The sampler quilt is stunning. I really like the way the black and white background and border fabric brings all the colours together and makes the blocks pop! I hope little sewing breaks help you get through this ultra busy season.


  6. It looks great! I like all over designs, they’re so much easier to do, most of mine are a variation on a meander!
