What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a black, white & red quilt after I saw some in the 2012 BOM - just Awesome!
What are you most proud of?
This is a 17.5" block with a 12.5" block within. This is the largest block I've ever made. The outer black triangles are "setting" triangles, as they are part of the quilt background. This Sampler is put together rather scattered in its arrangement - definitely not symmetrical in its layout. A bit hard to envision how all the other pieces fit in. If I figure it out, I will be most proud. :-)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be careful where you place your background fabric since its part of fitting all your blocks together. The use of the background fabric is not spelled out. You kind if catch on as you go.
