Long Arm Quilting Sampler

I'm finally doing it.

I've been meaning for a long time now to make a quilt that would show samples of quilting designs I've learned and adapted, highlighted in individual blocks. Of course my practical side played a part in doing this -- I selected fabrics in green, beige, taupe and orange coral so that the finished quilt will match my living room colors.

I'm excited that I am actually doing this long put off idea. The quilting is a good representation of my version of various quilting styles and designs. I often see quilting patterns in everyday items, such as architecture. For example, the green square above appears to me as a staircase when viewed from the top looking down.

I'll be blogging more about this in the days ahead, discussing the various styles and patterns, and my interpretations of them.
