Making a start

I started piecing my long ago sampler quilt today. I'm very glad I decided to go for a side by side effect. I'll think about border(s) later. It's very difficult when the fabrics today are now so different. I do have a possibility but will wait for the top. Meanwhile I have been sandwiching and a Linus quilt and cushion top lie on the bed awaiting  quilting. I did quilt the little leftovers of leftovers 24" Linus quilt (they do need this size). I was pleased I could follow a drawn stencil line with my walking foot. However the  marks did not come off the poplin hearts fabric as they did off the orange corners. I even wonder if the hearts fabric doesn't contain poly.
Love these sampler blocks

Awaiting quilting

All done

Your sampler quilt is lovely was wondering, would liberty print work for the border?
