I've been AWOL due to a nasty virus, but in between paroxysms of coughing and feeling miserable I have managed to finish my ITH sampler quilt.

I have to say I'm very pleased with the back! (The black stripe across the top is the hanging sleeve.
I do confess that after making two rows completely ITH, I found that my work area wasn't big enough to manoeuvre it as it got bigger so I stuck to making rows ITH and then joining them on the sewing machine.
The back is finished by hand.

In spite of being sick, you have done a wonderful job of it. I understand it to be a wall hanging, not actually large enough for a cover/quilt? It will make a beautiful display of your work.

I like the back as much as the front. But I think the front is going to win out as there is much more detail. Beautiful work!

These are awesome!! I like them both!!! I wish I was confident enough to do a quilt ITH. How do you join the rows to the others? Great job!

The seams are part of the design.

Turned out great. I love the colors. The pop of the orange among the shades of grey looks super.
