The sampler started with a block that I made for my quilt clubs’ Christmas 16″ block exchange. After I finally finished it, I couldn’t part with it, LOL! I used the same fabrics to make the smaller blocks and put them around the feathered star in the center. I had done the star with scraps of fabric and had a tough time finding more for the rest of the blocks. It turned out it was discontinued but I finally found a lady through the internet who had a couple of yards of it. I just love the little quilt and hate putting it away after Christmas.
