Sampler Quilt Beginnings

Around Christmas, I posted a new design for a sampler quilt.  I have decided to move forward with making it up, as I might be teaching it soon locally, as a series of classes. I need to make sure the blocks work as a mini quilt (36 x 36″) and lap quilt (72 x 72″).


First step, of course my favorite part, the fabric selection. I have a open decision to make on the dark blue print….which one do you think, 1 or 2?

Option 1: Route (Alex Morgan)

Option 2: Entangled (Heather Dutton)

Here are the fabrics (in option 2) and the links in where to find them on

    I like option 2. It’s a little less busy and will read better as a dark fabric. And I prefer the design on it too. This is going to be a lovely quilt and I’m looking forward to seeing its progress.

    I’d go with choice number 2, and the first swatch is a little duller, compared to your other fabrics int eh pull. I can’t wait to see more!

    I’m in the minority in that I like #1. It looks like the light blue lines in the print match the “math” print which really helps to tie it together with the rest of the fabrics you chose!
