10. "Our Journey" Pattern: Mama's Sampler Quilt. Story: Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary, I wanted to represent the cycles of our relationship. Choosing a sampler seemed a natural way to do that. My sampler has varying size blocks & color intensities all framed by a chain, thus signifying the differing time lines of our relationship but held together by love. This quilt is for my husband. I learned contrasting colors can dramatically show the precise piecing skills...or lack of skills.
