First quilt finish of 2017!

Finally! It's done...big sighhhh. 
This is a mishmash of solid blocks (and partial blocks) that I had laying around the sewing room. I decided not to make certain quilts or projects but I still liked my "tester" piece so I decided on a sampler.
This was a bit of a challenge mathematically...I had to measure each piece/block then sash it or join it to another to get them to work together. Graph paper saves me! 
Isn't it odd how cast offs and scraps can end up being a favorite quilt?

Samplers have always been popular and using orphan blocks to get a bonus sampler - gold stars.

I made the 64 block, stitched the rows together then finished the top but Jenn and I decided to make the quilt a bit bigger. It's 48&q...
