A Sampler

I started reading Jennifer Chiaverrini's Elm Creek Quilts series by chance.
Just found one in the library one day and decided to give it a try.
It had a quilt on the cover after all!
I have since read them all.
I was in my local quilt shop one day and happen to see this book

I have never done a sampler so I bought the book and decided to give it a try.
I decided that I just wanted a throw for my bedroom so I used a fat quarter bundle of
Fig and Plum by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda.
My dilemma now is how to quilt a sampler.
Do I just use an all over pattern and machine quilt it?
Or do I hand quilt it and quilt each block individually?
What would you do?

Don't forget about our giveaway! You can get to that post from here!

  1. Good question, I've never done a sampler either! I'd vote for an all-over stippling pattern, some loopy-de-loops or maybe some straight-line quilting. What a beautiful quilt top!

  2. I would do an overall pattern too(but I only hand quilt small items : )
    I like to read the Elm Creek quilt series too!

  3. I've never done a sampler either! I think an all over pattern is good too, love me a stipple :) Thanks so much for linking up, see you next week!
