If you enjoy making small quilt blocks and sampler quilts, you'll love my new book! Inspired by the antique sampler quilts so many of us love, Schoolgirl Sampler is a treasure trove of 4" blocks reminiscent of those sewn by schoolgirls during the nineteenth century as they learned to quilt.
The book includes simple instructions for making the traditional quilt blocks we all love in small scale. Combine all 72 blocks into a sampler quilt or select a few favorites to use in any of six other charming doll quilts.
The blocks are fun and easy to stitch and perfect for using up your reproduction-fabric scraps. You can complete several blocks in one sitting or finish a small quilt in a weekend.
Schoolgirl Sampler also includes plenty of tips for sewing small blocks, simple rotary-cutting instructions and clear piecing diagrams - no tracing or cutting templates to make the blocks. User friendly!
Stitch projects with names such as Wagon Wheels, Crossing the Prairie, and Aunt Sarah's Scrap Baskets, or make a Tree of Life friendship quilt featuring blocks autographed by friends or family. Vintage photos and the words of pioneer women from the mid-nineteenth century, a time when quilting offered a welcome respite from the hardships of moving westward, are sprinkled throughout.
Small & Scrappy includes patterns for 16 charming little quilts made with historic details. Based on traditional patterns, these delightful little patchwork treasures are perfect additions to scatter throughout your home. Stitch classic blocks using your favorite reproduction fabrics and create sentimental, handmade treasures.
