Wow, what a gorgeous quilt! It combines my two favorite blocks: log cabin and sawtooth stars. I just love this! And I too am such a sucker for cute packaging.

So good looking!

It's beautiful and so worth that piano border! Country Sampler packages are wonderful. I take mine apart right away to look at all the fabrics and then I feel bad because I destroyed the pretty package!


Love your finished quilt it's really beautiful!
And this problem with unwrapping a bundle is something we all know. I even have it with Jelly Rolls;-)


I too love "the marketing" aspect of my packages I receive. Too cute to use. Love your newest quilt and glad you finished it up.

Lovely finish! I love the border and your fabric choices really did well this time around. It's easy to see why disturbing those cute "packages" could be a problem! I have trouble cutting into favorite fabrics.


Love it, controlled scrappy and piano key border, fantastic. Also the drunkards path is pretty sweet. Enjoy the weekend

love your quilt. I know what you mean about packaging of kits from Country Sampler, I have several kits and it is such fun looking at these yummy fabrics.


I love it!

It is just fantastic Nicole. The piano key border really sets the blocks. Love, love, love it! I have a thing about French general fabrics myself. I have made three fairly large quilts from different lines and would make another in a minute. Now I find myself covering hexies with the scraps. What the heck? Have a great weekend.

It's a beautiful quilt!

Beautiful! And worth unwrapping that bundle! I know how you felt about that .... I had a FQ bundle that came in beautiful little "crate" wrapped up in a bow. I had it sitting on my shelf for at least 10 years! I just used it last year. LOL!!


I love this quilt! Beautiful fabrics and I am sure you will enjoy sleeping under that one this winter. So snuggly. I feel your pain about clever packaging and general reluctance to cut into favorite fabric bundles. I just keep telling myself "they make more ya know. Too often, they make more must-have fabric"

Congrats on the finish - the top is just lovely!


This is beautiful, your fabric choices are perfect. I love Carrie's patterns and I was lucky enough to go to Country Sampler in person last year. Haven't stopped thinking about that shop since!


Just love how your quilt turned out 😍 I'm also a sucker for cute packaging and must admit it would be hard for me to tear it apart too. I would probably just buy more of that fabric so I could just look at my pretty bundle 😝
