This is the only Saturday Sampler I have actually completed. It is the first one that I ever participated in - it was probably back in 2005. I have participated in, I think, 4 others, but the blocks are still waiting to be put together.
Here is a close up of some of the better quilted parts.
I used a wool batting, which was very nice. It quilted up much puffier than cotton. You have to wash it in cold water and can't use the dryer, but it is very light and warm. A good choice, in my opinion, for a larger quilt.
This was my daughter's graduation quilt. She graduated high school in 2005. She got it in 2008. I named it "Patience is a Virtue".
