    This is a 12 block sampler that I use in teaching beginner classes. I start with the easy 9-patch block and progress in difficulty with each block to triangles, y-seams, curves and finally applique. When they are finished, they have the skills to take any pattern from any book or magazine and make it!

    Fantastic idea! I may have to sign up for a class just to learn a little bit of everything. I love your color choices on your sampler.

    I like this a LOT! Did you use a book with all the blocks in it?

    No, I just designed my own blocks, except for the last applique block and that was something I traced from somewhere years and years ago. The rest just came from my head based on making most of these before. I just did some quick math in my head or on paper to make the blocks 12" finished and figured out what size I needed all the pieces.

    Holy Canoli! That is some sampler! How long is your class? Just beautiful, and I can only imagine how excited your students are when they are finished.
