Saturday Sampler Quilt - Finished!

This might be my longest in-progress quilt! I don't really want to look to figure it out, so we'll call it that.

My local quilt store does two Saturday Sampler quilts every year - pieced and applique. Basically, you buy the pattern and get every block free as long as you show up for the monthly demonstration. I wasn't a big fan of the fabric, but I like free, so I signed up in January 2011.

Some of the blocks gave me headaches, but I learned super-accurate piecing with all the bits in each one!

I bought the panel with the fabric line instead of the finishing kit and made it my own, placing everything on point around the center medallion from the original pattern. {The cat also put his special stamp on it.}
I did not, ahem, intend for the words to face in and out on the medallion. I discovered the error too late to contemplate swapping it, though.
I adore all the cream. Obviously not appropriate for my house, with the kid and the black cat. But it's going to my mother-in-law so I think she can manage to keep it clean!

The binding is piped, via this method. I love how it looks...hate the process of making the piping...attaching it to the binding...all before the normal binding!

And now I have to figure out what to do with the scraps and leftovers! {I'm kidding. Tons of 1.5" strips in there. Obviously a log cabin!}
