Just popping in quickly to share a crappy phone photo with you because I am so chuffed:
My Essential Sampler Quilt is now all put together! All of the incredibly-stupid quilt-as-you-go seams are sewn!
The end is in sight! I'm planning on free motion quilting a small stipple in the sashing just to reinforce the hand-sewn seams and then binding. And then it's done!
