Breezy Beginners' Sampler Quilt - WIP

Black and White Sampler Quilt

I started this quilt over a year ago.  It was part of a quilt-along I was doing over at and I kept up with it throughout the entire project. Well, almost. I was keeping up until the second to last week. I got to the very last block when everything came to a stand still. All I had left to do was the last block and then the borders and the top was totally done.

I don't like to make excuses but that last block and the final borders came at the same time I got my congenital degenerative disc disease diagnosis. So I was feeling pretty sorry for myself.  And as the weeks went on I move on to other projects and left this one behind.

I had some incentive to complete it when Michele, the quilt-along coordinator sent an email stating that the PDF quilt-along series would only be available for a few more weeks then she was turning the instructions into a booklet that would be for sale only.  I still didn't finish it.  And that was last year.

This April, Michele posted on her blog that her patterns would be on sale for the low, low price of $5 each. I took that opportunity to purchase the now completed booklet so I could finish the quilt top.  I still didn't finish it.

While sorting through my fabric in an effort to get organized, I came across the sampler and realized I was so close to finishing the top.  So in less than two days, I got the top done! I don't know what I was waiting for!

The funny thing about taking photos of this quilt is that they look like I took them in black and white but they are in color.
