In August of 2009 I designed a sampler quilt called Vicksburg. Prior to publishing it as a pattern and making it available for purchase, I ran it as a Free BOM on my blog. I offered it as a challenge to use only fabric from your stash- no fabric shopping. I followed the challenge as well. I even dyed several background prints to have enough that matched. It was a lot of fun to see everyone's blocks as we sewed along.
One of the quilters that sewed along was Cherie Moore. Cherie finished her quilt and had it quilted by Terri Kanyuk.
This is Cherie's gorgeous quilt. She entered it to be juried into the AQS show in Paducah. And guess what? It was accepted! How fantastic is that?! I am so excited for her. If you go to the show in April, make sure to look for Cherie's Vicksburg. Cherie also has a blog at - quiltedjonquil.com
