    My sister and I are making sampler quilts. I am looking for opinions as to which blocks MUST be included:

    We want blocks that are instantly recognizable as "the greatest blocks of all time."

    Samples:
    Log cabin
    Jacob's Ladder
    Bear's Paw
    Rail Fence

    Any other suggestions?

    We'd appreciate any suggestions you might have!

    Jack in the box, card trick, goose in the pond, delectible mts., LeMoyne Star, bow ties, pieced hearts, to name a very few. I love sampler quilts. I'm doing a BOM sampler quilt at the quilt shop here. It started today. I can't wait to get started on the first block. Keep us posted on your progress!
