My First Saturday Sampler

I began quilting January 2008 and this is the first finished product that is a composition of many blocks made over the year. Our local quilt shop has a Saturday Sampler and this year it was baskets and I selected the batik fabric designs. Here are my pictures. It is bright and cozy. I picked nine of the twelve baskets as a couple just didn't turn out well. My major learning on this project was the importance of 1/4 inch seam allowances. My machine is a bit off so I bought a special foot and the last three baskets came out exact. The flowers were an extra block you could make each month. I added butterflies to some baskets to change it up a bit.
