My Sunday Best Sampler Finish

This beauty has been done for awhile, but I hadn't had a chance to get some pictures. This is My Sunday Best Sampler Quilt which I did as a sew along with Corey Yoder and Sherri McConnell. Here is a link to their book: I love this quilt, but I kind of regret not making it bigger to use as a bed sized quilt for my guest room. The navy sashing is gorgeous. I may just need to make something similar and bigger...
Rachel quilted it with a sweet floral pattern that goes well with all the Bonnie and Camille scraps I used for the blocks. I forgot to get a picture of the backing, but it is a gray with navy and white flowers.
I preordered this kit before summer as a birthday present for myself and I think I may make it larger than the pattern calls for my guest bed. Isn't it lovely?
One of my teacher friends is fostering a baby that will hopefully turn into an adoption. She and her husband are amazing people and will be fantastic parents. I asked her the nursery's color palette and she did teal, navy, and orange with bicycles as a theme. She specifically asked that the quilt included no name as once their adoption is final it may change--so no name quilt this time. I quickly ordered some bicycle fabrics on Etsy and looked for a simple quilt design. I found this free tutorial for a Bricks Baby Quilt:
I made mine a couple of bricks wider and decided to add in some gray fabrics in the colors. I love how modern and cheerful it looks. I think I am going to straight line quilt it vertically. I already picked up a dark gray minky backing curbside from Joann's along with a navy Kona for the binding.
Speaking of binding, I am hand binding this beautiful quilt for Rachel this weekend and she has another one almost finished with the quilting that she needs in time for Christmas. We have had some snow and it is cold, so I am happy to cuddle up on the couch with some cappuccino and binge on Netflix while binding. Have a great weekend!



  1. Beautiful piece! I watch Sheri's tutes alot. Thinking I may make this too.
    Hope your friend is able to adopt the baby..your piece will surely make it all sweeter either way.
    Stay warm & safe!

  2. Your Sunday Best Sampler quit is gorgeous!Enjoy hand binding this one with hot beverage!
    It would be great if you would like to join us at the special 2020 link party 🥳!

  3. Ooo, your finish is beautiful and love the setting!! Daybreak's gonna be pretty and a great one for your bed. Hope your friends are able to adopt.

  4. Beautiful quilt you have made. Best of luck to your friends with their adoption. The baby quilt you are making is beautiful.

  5. Your Sunday Sampler is a stunner! I think I like it even more than Sherri’s version. My niece fostered one child and he stole her heart. She adopted him! I hope it works out for your friend! Her heart must be enormous!
