Schoolgirl Sampler (Available October 1st)

by Kathleen Tracy

Designer Kathleen Tracy is back with more delightful little quilts! This time she’s gathered a treasury of 4″ blocks reminiscent of those sewn by schoolgirls during the nineteenth century. Make all 72 timeless blocks and combine them in a sampler quilt or select a few favorites to use in any of six other charming quilts. Quick to stitch and perfect for reproduction-fabric scraps, the blocks are easy to make and you can complete several in one sitting or complete a small quilt in a weekend. Kathy includes plenty of tips for sewing small blocks, and her simple cutting instructions and clear piecing diagrams will help you succeed as you stitch each pint-sized treat.
