All done!

Ta da!

I finished my Splendid Sampler quilt top one year (to the day) that the first block was released.  There were 100 blocks in the year long QAL along with some bonus blocks.

I did all 100 blocks, staying reasonably in sync with when they were released.  My quilt top uses 99 blocks in a 9 x 11 layout.  The quilt top currently measures 54 1/2 x 66 1/2''.

The final layout doesn't use 3 of the original blocks and include 2 blocks I added including my wonky Christmas tree on the bottom row.  The fabric I used was a F8 bundle of a Christmas line so some blocks were modified along the way to be more Christmas themed.

Still thinking about borders but am leaning towards a thin red border and then the gold.  (I've enough left of the gold for a 2 1/2 '' border.)  

I'll be linking up my finish here.

This was also my February One Monthly Goal!

Happy Stitching!
