Sophia’s Sampler

It’s been a busy couple of weeks….but in the evenings I managed to get this sampler completed. It’s called Sophia’s Sampler by Cedar Hill.   (I had to have it because my granddaughter’s name is Sophia.)    I chose 32 ct. Lamb’s Wool Linen and modified the sampler by leaving out a design area I did not want in order to make it a perfect square.    I love the colors of the flowers at the top.

Now I am sewing daily on an art quilt.   It’s taking ALL of my free time.      I would love to tell you that it will be finished by my next post, but I doubt it!!!     Tomorrow we are going to celebrate Father’s Day here.    Both of our father’s have long since passed, but I have a son and son-in-law nearby who are fathers….as well as my DH…..so I will do the cooking and celebrate with all of them.

    Lovely sampler!

    Enjoy Father’s day …… we celebrate Father’s day in September, but it is a long weekend for the Queen’s Birthday. It is not really the Queen’s birthday, but one of her forefather’s, but the second weekend in June is set as the day to celebrate the monarch’s birthday.

    Hi Karen,
    What a great work you did of this Sophia Cedar Sampler! Thank you for the detailed photos so that we can fully appreciate. I can’t wait to see this big art quilt that, no doubt, is the wedding quilt………I guess it will be gorgeous.
    Have a nice father’s day you all.
