Introducing the Wildflower Sampler Booklet

Happy Tuesday!  Today I get to preview a new booklet that I’ve been working on for the past year.   It all began with my love of sampler quilts.

My first quilt was a sampler, and I have loved them ever since.  I also love flowers so it was natural for me to combine them both to make the cover quilt for this booklet.  I ended up making the sampler in 2 sizes for the book, so you have two options.  When I finished the samplers, I could envision the blocks from the sampler in their own quilts and the result is 5 bonus projects.  In today’s post, I’m going to show you the samplers.  In my next post, I will show you the remaining projects.

 

Here is the cover:

This sampler is made with my Wildflower Boutique fabric line.  It has just hit stores in the last two weeks, so I wanted to time the release of this book with the fabric.  It’s been a while since I have made a special project with my own fabric, so this quilt fits the bill!

 

Here are some close-ups of the blocks and fabrics:

The quilt is made up of 8 different blocks.  To make this large size sampler, you make each of them 4 times and sew them into four quadrants.

 

To make the small sampler, you make each of those blocks just once.  I have two versions of the small sampler in the book.  The first one is also made with my Wildflower Boutique fabric, but this time with a light background instead of the grey.

 

 

You can find kits for both of these on my website here.

 

The other version that I made uses the Sew Retro fabric line by Sarah Davies, also for Riley Blake Designs.  I just love the outer border fabric from this fun line!

And a few more close-ups for you:

 

 

 

If you are interested in purchasing the book, you can ask at your local quilt shop or find it in my online store here.  Again, kits for the two samplers using my fabric are here.

 

If you are interested in getting a copy of the book, I will draw a name from the people commenting on this post!  I will announce the winner in my next post.

 

This sampler can be used as a Block of the Month, so if you are interested in joining a block of the month, you can contact these shops.  The book just came out, so I will be adding to this list as I find out others that are offering it.

    Love your design, quilt & your beautiful fabric. I haven’t done a block of the month for sometime. This maybe just the one to do!!

  8. I always appreciate your showing how to incorporate large scale prints into quilts. Using one for the border really sets off the garden in the center!

    Wow! Really lovely!

  11. Kris Pedrow says:

    Just beautiful, as always. I love the gray backgrounds you’ve been using, but am amazed at how your wildflower fabrics just pop off the white backgrounds. It looks 3 dimensional. I instantly took a liking to coneflowers and stargazers. Congratulations on another set of patterns.

  12. Becky says:

    Love how bright and fun the quilt is. How big is the quilt? Can it be made larger by just making duplicate squares?
