Love my sampler box

I was extremely fortunate to score one of these at Quilt market. A Moda Bakeshop Sampler.

Sampler Boxes can already be found at the Fat Quarter Shop.


I decided it would be fun to make a quilt with each packet of fabric to showcase the fabric and sort of pay tribute to my first quilt market experience. I am determined to make 12 little quilts...



My first finish is a small tumbler made with Garden Party by Blackbird Designs it measures 10 inches X 12 inches .



I have 3 others started. One project has been cut and thus put on hold until I can look at it again. The other 2 I have started, use Sandy Gervais new line and Lila Tueller's Eden. There are 12 total and as I said before...not sure I can actually do this with all the other commitments I have...we'll see.

What a great idea, Vickie. I ordered mine and it's on its way. I didn't know if I wanted to leave it as is or actually DO something with it. 12 mini quilts is a great idea. I like that tumbler quilt too. I've never made one before.

FUN!
I love tumblers so this one really appeals to me!

That is some project to use all 12! I could never dream of getting that much done or adding that many projects to my plate! I hope you complete them so I can just enjoy seeing what you create!

That's a great use of the fabrics and good for you using them so soon. I love the tumbler quilt a lot, it goes well with Annie.

I recently made a two-sided tumbler tabletopoper (or TTTT) for Halloween/Fall. I am officially in love with tumblers of all sizes and this doll quilt is adorable! My scraps are now going to be totally tumbler...
