Project 1 - The Sampler
The sampler is to be completed over Vols 1 & 2 of the book series. This is to have a 'try out' of the techniques before cutting into a bigger project, such as a quilt top.
The centre block is the part to be made in Vol 1 - Freshman Year. It give you practice on various techniques such as preparing fabric, accurate cutting, measuring, pressing, and that all important seam allowance.
It was not difficult to do and didn't take very long. I should I think re-do this as there is some distortion from pressing.
