Comfy Cozy Christmas and a Pieceful New Year

Christmas Sampler Quilt

I pieced this Christmas quilt in Mary Lou Scott’s sampler class many years ago.  I always refer to this class as my ‘Master Quilting Class’ as Mary Lou was a master quilter who taught many quilters.  Each week we would get together make a new block and learn some new techniques.  One week Mary Lou would teach us several ways to hand appliqué, another week she would teach us several ways to machine appliqué, every week new piecing magic.  I learned so much in this class and took away my own favourite techniques which I use to this day.

Wishing you a comfy cozy Christmas and a pieceful New Year ~ Edith at Inch by Inch Quilting.


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Edith. My friend gave me lovely quilt as a going away gift. While we are in temporary accommodation it is spread out as a reminder of home and friends

    1. A quilt - indeed a lovely gift your friend has given you. I would love to see a picture of it.

    2. Why didn't I think of that before? She has made some wonderful quilts. I am visiting Calgary in February so I will take some pictures and write a post on them.
