Sample Blocks

This has always been a favorite block, so I thought I would make a sample 9" - too small.  I wanted to see the fabrics more, with a larger scale block, so I sewed a 12" sample.  You can see where this is going...

Yes, indeed, there was no stopping.  This is still just blocks, and I'm considering a border.  As I was sewing, I thought that this should look like an upscale farm quilt, which makes me lean toward no border.  It will be 72" square as is.

Your quilt is truly upscale. What a great block to showcase your fabulous fabric collection. I really love it. I don't think it needs a border either.

That block is on my to-do list too and now that I saw your quilt, I sooooo want to get at it. Love your colours. The kind of quilt I just want to bundle up in. Upscale farm quilt ... that could be a very good name for it.
Thanks for sharing.
