Ten years later... A Finish!

Sunday I finished this sampler lap quilt. The blocks were started in a Saturday Sampler, the first one I ever attended. I posted about the top last week.

One block and a strip of braid had to go on the back. I was determined that all the pieces would be part of this finish. I took the finished quilt to school Monday and another teacher recognized one of the blocks. She said that she and her mom bought the block kit in 2003 or 2004 but had not finished it. I was surprised and delighted. I had forgotten when we started the sampler class.

The quilt above contains only half of the blocks we made in the class.
The quilt below was made from the other blocks a year ago. I put them together for a raffle at school.

This one has the blocks that were easier to line up and I added two borders. 
The backing is light blue.

One last photo of the new quilt's back. The flash helped a little, I think.

Feeling so good about completing these unfinished projects that I'm going to tackle the queen to king redo this weekend. Hope you have a great weekend!
Linking with Amanda.
