Saturday Sampler @ Six... Block 15

Block 15 - Overall Sam
You can view the first 14 blocks here... 8-)

Many of you have commented on my making these blocks while busy with weddings, and all that goes along with it, multiplied by two, but in actual fact, these blocks were made a few years ago...
This project is one of my PhDs.
My plan: Once I post the last block (block 25), I am hopeful that I will have them all put together into a quilt top to show. A start to my upcoming 2011 PhD Challenge... 8-)

This is what I've been doing this week...
Stitching together a big enough piece of batting, and a backing, for DD1 and MrFarmer's wedding quilt, which I quilted at Carellan Sewing Center on Friday...
Loading the frame...
Pinning/loading...
Unstitching... of course...
A peek at one small section... You'll see the rest soon enough! 8-)
I am hoping to get the binding and label finished up this coming week... Wish me luck! Time is closing in...
I'm still piecing DD2 and MrRose's wedding quilt too....
Have I mentioned that I am a sluggish quilter? LOL!
I work best under pressure... 8-)

Hope you are all having a great weekend!

Good for you Myra. I don't think I would be brave enough to try and quilt it myself. Your DD and her husband will love it.
