Shari's Sew Kind of Wonderful Sampler...

My friend, Shari, from New Jersey, made this amazingly beautiful Sew Kind of Wonderful sampler.
You can find the pattern, Curve It Up, here.
Shari used a Cotton & Steel line of fabrics.

Here are some close-ups of the blocks:
I tell you what - it was SO much fun quilting this quilt!
I quilted a soft swirl in the white background areas.
This allows Shari's blocks to "float".
I love floating blocks!

Mmmmm - so much motion!
I have the Sidekick ruler, created by the nice folks at Sew Kind of Wonderful, which I finally got to use.

A curvy Churn Dash block - my favorite traditional block.

Just a few straight lines....

Concentric circles in the circle block.

I love how Cotton & Steel's designers write a little message on their selvage edges. 
This is Shari's backing:'s my sampler! 
I know - one day I'll have more to show, but for now I just stare at these humble beginnings....
A sweet gift from Shari for me.
Quilter's don't usually get quilted gifts, but Shari outdid herself.

I love my table runner.
Thank you so much, sweet lady.
