Nine years ago I made my first quilt with a weathervane block and some 4-patches in the corners. It's a small one (50 cm or about 20 inch) with big quilt stitches. It's on the wall of my workspace and I use it . . . . . . as my design board. Right now all samplers for Sharon's class are pinned on it. Nefertiti at the bottom right is nearly finished, I only need to add some finishing touches.
If you want to know more about my samplers, just follow the Plos tag.
