Just wanted to share the first, preliminary mock-up of the sampler-quilt. It now awaits the arrival of the sashing-fabric. All blocks will be sashed with dark blue and red corner-stones. Once that is done, a couple of days will pass as I move blocks around, and get the right distribution.
BUT, there's still plenty of hand-work left on the QD to take me through until the sashing-fabric arrives. Maybe it will even take me through the period of determination on the sampler :-)
