Another quilt finish!
A finished quilt is always a fun post. I love having a project finally bound and out of the sewing room for good. The joy of making it is one thing, but the joy of finally having a finished quilt to use, gift and photograph is another joy to celebrate.
Today, I am sharing with you my Community Sampler Quilt, bound and finally done.
I have been sharing the progress and finish on Instagram, and have been enjoying other people’s work too with hashtag #communitysampler.
Here are previous posts of the quilt progress:

Here is a photo I took of the progress:
The fabrics of the blocks were also all from Art Gallery Fabrics: which were mostly from the Bloom Fusion Collection and Maureen Cracknell’s Garden Dreamer.
The fabric for the border again is from Art Gallery Fabrics that was in my stash. Both of the fabric border in the photo below are Tule meadow by Leah Duncan
The background fabric is also of Art Gallery Fabric : Houndstooth from Blithe Collection by Katarina Rocella. Here is one on sale but in a different colour-way. I love the subtle pattern on it, yet not being so white.
It fits the whole quilt perfectly.
I quilted the quilt with an allover quilting motif of leaves.
I love the textures this motif gives.
The backing fabric is a used handmade flat sheet I bought from a second-hand store.
I love the peachy colours that fit perfectly for this quilt.
Since I am keeping the quilt to myself, I am not too worried that the backing has this three connecting pieces (too make it large enough as a double flat sheet) and has some embroidery on the piece.
There are many floral fabrics and bold colours in this quilt.
Which both represent my style a lot.
I picked a dotty binding. One because that was the only one that is enough and matched well.
Two: because I wanted some contrast to the blue navy border to make it stand out and frame it nice and thin.
The first borders looks like little butterflies around the quilt, which was the look I was aiming for.
Overall I really did enjoy making this quilt and joining along the quilt along, cheering on others and looking at the various version of the quilt.
I did finish this one before my earlier quilt-along last year which was the Sewcial Bee Sampler, but that one is coming to finish very soon too! That one had a little more blocks than this one.
Here is a photo of the quilt in the gum tree forest in our backyard view. Nature is always so beautiful.
Did you join the quilt along? How is yours turning out? I hope you did enjoy making yours too!
If you didn’t join real live time, you can always join at any time, currently it is available for FREE over at Sharon’s Site. Both Sharon and Maureen have been kind enough to create beautiful instruction and hosted this quilt-along.
Linking to Friday Finish, Linky Tuesday..
