Sunnyside Sampler

This is my quilt- Sunnyside Sampler. It was based on an antique quilt from Sunnyside Ohio. I released the pattern in January 2013. Because I had shops waiting on the pattern I shot the cover without it being quilted. I really wanted to hand quilt it but never found the time. It remained just a top and as I carried it around for trunkshows it began to show some wear. Fortunately for me I have a group of friends who meet every Tuesday at the Methodist Church and hand quilt for people.
I was lucky enough to get my quilt on their list and now it has been returned to me- beautifully hand quilted.
Here is the finished quilt with the lovely ladies who quilted it. I couldn't be happier! 
When I made my quilt I used my fabric line Best Wishes and went for a patriotic look but Common Threads in Waxahachie did the quilt in scrappy colors for their BOM.
If you are looking for a kit, you might be able to still get one from them or Homestead Hearth. 
I am off to bind my quilt.
Happy Quilting,


  1. I love all your work but this one is still my favorite. I don't know why but it just speaks to me.

  2. Lovely! Fun to see it in two color ways.

  3. Your quilt is beautiful and how lucky to have your ladies quilt it too!

  4. Beautiful, Dawn! I love sampler quilts!

    1. I love samplers too! I think they have so much movement.
