still quilting the Splendid Sampler

I went to a machine quilting bee this evening – my first time there – and it was a lot of fun! There were quilters who quilt on a domestic machine, sit-down, and long arms.  Some who quilt for themselves, some who get paid or even make a profession of it, some who have quilts in shows coming up.  Some who have just started and others who’ve been at it for years.  It was a lot of fun!

I’m still quilting on the Splendid Sampler.  I figure since I know so many people who are working on theirs also or will be quilting it before too long, that sharing photos of the various blocks would be of interest to at least one or two other people than me – haha! Today I did some echoing around appliques, some basic stippling, some ruler work and so forth.

And of course I had to throw in some little hearts around the heart on top of a cupcake block.  That’s a whole lotta hearts for just a 6″ block!
