Overview

Create a sampler quilt as unique as you are!

Tula Pink gives you an inspiring quilt block collection with Tula Pink's City Sampler. Make a beautiful, modern quilt of your own design with the 100 original quilt blocks or try one of the 5 city-themed sampler quilts designed by Tula.

A note from Tula:

"You will notice...that the blocks are not named but simply numbered. This is intentional. I may have designed the blocks and given you the instructions on what to cut and where to stitch, but I have not infused the blocks with any meaning. This is your quilt. The fabrics that you choose, the colors that you use and why you are making it are what will give the quilt a purpose. Name your blocks, write in the margins, cross out the ones that you don't like, draw hearts around the ones that you love. In a perfect world, everyone's book would end up looking like a journal, coffee stains and all. The more adventurous ones might rename the book and write their own introduction. Tula Pink's City Sampler is a collaboration between you and me. I am the platform and you are the speaker, so stand on my shoulders and tell the future who you are and why you make."

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Sampler quilts, like the Farmer's Wife or Dear Jane quilt, are a staple of traditional quilt-making. Best known for her fanciful fabric designs, Pink puts a modern spin on this old-school format with this collection of six-inch blocks, all designed and sewn in her vibrant fabrics. Each block design includes a close-up photograph of the finished block, along with cutting directions and a piecing diagram. This format will be familiar to quilters who have made sampler quilts before. The directions are in diagram form, so some basic knowledge of patchwork piecing is required. Five full-size quilts incorporating all or most of the blocks in the collection are provided. VERDICT Pink is a big name in modern quilting, and sampler quilts are surprisingly popular among quilters of all tastes. This one should be a hit.
