Carrie Hall Samplers

Carrie Hall Sampler
Hand appliquéd and machine pieced by
Jerrianne Evans
Machine quilted by Cynthia Clark. 74" x 84"

Jerrianne has finished her block-of-the-month project from Common Threads in Waxahachie, Texas. The shop offered Carrie Hall's Sampler from the book I did for Star Books a few years ago.
Jerrianne writes:

I started with the Block of the Month and modified your original design by replacing all of the pieced blocks with appliqued blocks based on Carrie Hall's block designs.  I drafted the smaller blocks.  Sue Garman drafted the large center block of Potted Tulips.

I also saw a Carrie Hall sampler for sale in an online auction recently.

This one with it's pieced setting strips is like the cover design.

I am sure the lucky bidder is pleased with her purchase.

  1. Beautiful quilts, love the Carrie Hall Samplers design, lovely!

  2. I made this too!!! It's been laying, half quilted, on my sewing table, while summer house projects have interrupted.
    I loved this book. I learned a new appliqué method right before I found the book, so I got to experiment and practice. I was sad when I was done...it went so fast!!
    Thank you!

  3. Stunning quilts....I love the colours in both.Here in New Zealand we don't see antique quilts for sale.

  4. I have begun this quilt too - well I have made one block but I do love the patterns.
    Thanks for sharing this inspiration
