    I have seen a few people make sampler quilts and I would like to do one as well. I was looking through the blocks at Quilter's Cache, but I wanted to see if you guys had suggestions for blocks. I don't want to just pick random blocks, but rather a set of different blocks that will give me the chance to try different piecing techniques. Since I am not too familiar with all the different things out there, I thought you might be able to help me by suggesting blocks!!

    Cheers!

    There is a great book called "The Farmer's wife sampler" or something like that and it has many sampler blocks, some simple some more complicated. It is a sampler I hope to make someday
