The Contemporary Sampler Author:Katie Pasquini This book is designed for the first time quiltmaker, as well as the more experienced quilter who wants to try out a new format. There are three sizes of quilts: the small wall quilt, excellent for the novice as a first project because it is not so large as to be threatening; the wall quilt, a little larger project but still small enough for the... more » beginner to enjoy; and the bed quilt, a larger project for those who are more ambitious. All three quilts are based on the Contemporary Quilt Sampler format.
This format is designed to give the sampler quilt a more contemporary look. The four center blocks allow you to see what happens when four blocks are set together without spacing. The other blocks are set off by triangle blocks and strips to enhance their individuality. By placing your own choice of blocks into the spaces provided, you design your own quilt. By choosing your own fabrics, the quilt becomes even more your own statement.« less
