Between my day job, writing blogs and the regular housework, my sampler is fit in. The 1/2 inch grid is almost done. A bit on the lower and upper right, and then under the sewing machine to put on the binding. Here the proof of my work:
Someone asked why I decided on a 1/2 inch grid instead of the 1/4 inch. I learned the rule that the grid should be smaller than the smallest main motif, to make that pop up too. My smallest main motif is the leafs on the heart. A too small grid wouldn't make the grid better, there would be too difference in size between the grid and the main motifs. So therefore, and that's mainly gut-feeling, I decided on a 1/2 inch.
Hope to finish this class sample tonight!
Have fun quilting!
