Saturday Sampler Participant in Texas

This Saturday Sampler quilt from 2007 was done by one of our online participants, Donice Hays, from Texas. Donna pieced the blocks monthly; her aunt, Jean Noel, did the beautiful machine quilting. It's a great sampler quilt. She is also participating in this year's Saturday Sampler, once again by mail.
