Sampler Quilt

I just finished working with quilt blocks that I inherited from my Mom.  I made a quilt for my son, Greg, who was happy to pose for the photo. The sampler blocks that went into this quilt are all different colors, with flower prints.  Greg loves vintage, but knew I would need to give the flower prints a masculine feel, so I used a dark gray for the sashing, borders, and straight line machine quilting.  The graphics are bold and the quilt doesn’t feel feminine at all.

When I saw the Tim Holtz “Communication” fabric, I knew Greg would love it for the backing.  It has vintage type and typewriters, and the classic Tim Holtz grunge look.  I was so tickled to see he has a fabric line, because I use so many Tim Holtz products to make cards.

Greg loves his quilt.  I certainly loved making it... and mom lives on.

Be Creative and thanks for stopping by.

I just LOVE this quilt! The Tim Holtz fabric on the back makes this so versatile and masculine! Gorgeous!
