thanks. this is just 12 sampler blocks repeated twice. One of the twelve is repeated a third time to make a total of 25 blocks. the blocks are 12 1/2" x 12 1/2". 3 1/2" sashing. The boarters are varied first one 1 1/2" next one 3 1/2" then of you want go back to 2 1/2" then 4 1/2". just don't make your boarders all the same size. If you dont have a book that has Sampler Block Patterns you can easily find them online. Just type Free Sampler Quilt Patterns. When you get it done please send me a picture of it or post it on my face book page. Emmit Penny
