Sampler with Rings

Click any image for detailed view.



One of my absolute favorite things about vintage quilts is discovering something that begs the questions, “What was she thinking?”. In the case of this quilt, Sampler with Rings, the entire quilt made me ask that question. The scrappy, haphazard design makes me so happy. It inspired me so much that I purchased the quilt from the collector Julie Silber and then Alex Anderson and myself both used it as a jumping off point of inspiration for our own quilt challenge.
When I was working on designing fabrics for the Lizzy Albright vintage fabrics, I found inspiration in some of these fabrics. This quilt is likely a 1940’s quilt. I hope it will make you scratch you head, but also hope it makes you smile. It is a FUN jigsaw puzzle. Give it a try.


Choose your own difficulty. Click the 9-patch grid to change number of pieces. Click the circle arrow to make the puzzle pieces rotating instead of stable orientation. Also, there are tips under the "?" on the upper right of the puzzle. If you'd like a full screen version, click the button below. Have fun!
