Shirt Samples Quilt

FROM THIS......


TO THIS...!!

 I FINALLY finished the quilt I made for a wedding gift for my sister and brother-in-law.  I had to cut each block out and sew every square together with a temperamental sewing machine.  I actually hate the way it looks but my husband convinced me to give it to my sister in law anyways.

 I made this quilt for a total of $7.  All of the samples cost me .25 cents total and I didn't even use half of the samples.  The backing is a sheet I found at a thrift store for $4.  I found the batting at a flea for $1.50.  I used one spool of thread which was $1.25.

It's wonderful! I only just started hand sewing embroidery and am still afraid of touching my sewing machine. I would love to be able to manage something like this one day.

I think it looks great. Way to go Keri! I see those sample books at yard sales pretty often.
