Ok, last pictures of this one...I promise!!

 My splendid sampler (American Sampler!) is complete, at least the top is complete.
 Red, red, red...a lot of it!!  In the pictures, it looks rather overpowering, but I like it, in real life!!
I may rethink this border, but for now, I am leaving it.  I am just glad it is in one piece!!


The blue lab coat, that is used in the sashing?  I used every inch of it!!!  Sleeves, pockets, everything...just barely the right amount of fabric.  Hurrah!!


Thank you for hanging with me, for this one!!!

We'll need a few more pictures of that quilt (quilted, and bound), at least. Great quilt!

This is beautiful. Never thought of doing a sampler in red/white/blue. Waiting to see the backing and the quilting. Don't forget to share.

Even though it was challenging, I think it is great that you were able to use up the lab coat in this way. It looks grand!!
