I have finished the top of my sampler quilt at last. Remind me never to do one of these again. Not my cup of tea at all. But it has been an interesting experiance and I have learnt a lot. Mainly measure 2 or 3 times before I cut. I had to redo the sashing as I had miscounted the number of strips I needed, which meant the sashing ended up very very thin. I think in total the sashing took longer than the blocks themselves. Just need to find a backing and get the quilting done.
