Pioneer Sampler

These are photos of a new quilter's Pioneer Sampler Quilt. Its an Eleanor Burns quilt that was started in a class that several of us took from a local quilter. I take it just to have a night free to piece some of my own projects and to visit with friends.  Coleen did a great job on her quilt; this is only her second one.

Her border was so busy that I just did a big meander in red, after talking her out of cross-hatching (no point in paying for something that won't show). A "CC" in the red Seminole border finished off the outside.  Each block had a different fill and the sashing had a new treatment for me. I love how it turned out (she says modestly), take a look.

A close-up of one of the blocks. Do you think the sashing looks like wishbones? I have no idea what the actual name of it is.

And a close-up of the back...I always love the back.

Thanks for looking!!
