I have been sewing for most of my life. Lucky for me, my mother owned a sewing machine and I started altering my own clothes as a teenager. When I graduated, my parents bought me my own sewing machine and I caught the quilting 'bug'. With two very talented grandmothers before me who held such talents as knitting, sewing and painting, as well as grandfathers who were master craftsmen it's no surprise I was destined to create! I can remember intently watching Granny at the sewing machine, and holding Mum's yarn for her, feeling so special to be part of the process. They passed onto me the love of a handmade item.View all patterns by designer (65) »

I hope you love this fun sampler quilt... I've always been drawn to scrappy looking quilts. When I look at my completed quilt it makes me think of all the projects those scraps came from - it's almost like a memory quilt to me. So use up those scraps or work with some new ones!
Every month I'll post a new sampler block and you will see your quilt come to life over the next 12 months. Work at your own pace and on your own time. You will have a chance to complete blocks using a different pattern and or technique each month.
