Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Top


It's finally finished!!  Well, pieced at least.  I still need to seam the back and then quilt and bind it, but it's pieced!  I hate putting on borders, and that has been the longest part of the whole process. 

I had tons of fat quarters left over once the blocks were pieced, so I sewed them together, cut them up, and made the cute little pieced outer border.  I plan on using the remaining leftovers to bind the quilt in.  It's going to be so cute when it's done!  I can't wait.  I even know how I'm going to quilt it:  I have a floral pantograph that I want to use and some light pink thread.  Oh!  I'm so excited!!

I know ages ago you posted a tutorial (for me, maybe?) on draft blockers. I can't seem to find it in your archives... that and I'm terribly impatient. Would you mind directing me?

I've tried looking online for a tutorial, but I don't like the ones I've found...

Jenny - Thanks! I had a lot of fun making the quilt. And Marsh is pretty cute, isn't he? hehe ;)

Thats it! I'm super jealous. I want to have mine finished. I'm going to do it, very soon. This is going to spur me on.
