Here is a lovely Sampler quilt made by Loretta.  It is the Jelly Roll Classic Sampler Quilt which was a mystery quilt from the Quilt Room back in 2009.  Loretta originally made the blocks as part of a group of ladies who were following the mystery journey and it was one of her first quilts.

The 12" blocks were all designed to made from a Moda Jelly Roll using a combination of pinwheels, Flying Geese and square blocks.  The Hobbs Polydown wadding we used gave wonderful dimension to the quilting and should wear well when it is washed.

I did all the SID (Stitch in the Ditch) and custom ruler work with just one specialist long arm ruler, made by Handi Quilter.  I used a combination of Monopoly Invisible thread by Superior threads and  a green Isacord thread.

Loretta prepared the binding for me to add on and it is now stitched down and on its way to Northern Ireland as a gift.  Now this sampler quilt is done, the next in the queue is the same quilt made by another lady in the same group, but is a completely different colourway.
