One Easy Quilt Sampler... Twelve Basic Blocks You Can Use to Make Endless QuiltsThis little book includes a complete pattern for a twelve-block sampler quilt, plus patterns and instructions for making for the twelve easy blocks that go into the sampler. You will also learn how to add sashing and borders to your quilt.There's a good reason why I call these twelve easy blocks the building blocks of quilting. Once you have them in your quilter's tool kit, you can use them to create literally hundreds of different quilts.Every one of these blocks is a workhorse that you will find in many, many quilt patterns. You will see many of them as the basic components of larger and more complicated quilt blocks. They all add a sense of life and movement to a quilt. Even better, they are all simple enough for you to sew successfully, even if you've never made a quilt before.All twelve blocks have a finished size of nine inches. This is a standard size that is much used in quilt patterns. You can easily mix and match these blocks with each other or with other blocks to make your own quilt patterns. In fact, you can use this pattern as a framework for many different quilts, just replacing the sampler blocks with your own selections.Need Help with Quilting Techniques?The pattern in this book is a companion to my book for new quilters, Quilts for Beginners, which covers in detail all the tools, supplies, and techniques you need to successfully make your first quilts.
