Default Sampler Book

I'm interested in a book of sampler blocks, like a Dear Jane. Does anybody have any recommendations?

TIA
Dorian

Im doing Sylvias Bridal Sampler. I really like it, and think it will be a very pretty quilt.

This one is awesome b/c it gives you measurements to produce blocks in several sizes. The Dear Jane book (I just recently purchased) has applique and hand pieced 4"? blocks and is a very unique book. I also feel like it is more advanced than making typical pieced blocks.

If you are looking to make the Dear Jane quilt, get that book. If you are looking for a reference for tons of different blocks, the one from my link is great. You can get alot of block patterns for free on line but I love to peruse books.

I'm not sure this is exactly what you're looking for but the first quilting class I took was taught out of a sampler book by Diane Leone (I think it was just called The Sampler Quilt or something similar). I loved the book so much & found it so helpful that when I wore my first one out, I bought a new one! Just my two cents worth...

I like the trip around the block books, they have 501 different blocks and have the measurements for making each block in different sizes. My very best favorite book.
