 Hand Applique' Sampler
Starts Thursdays January 18, 2018
Each week we will create a new hand applique' block to complete a fabulous Applique' Sampler Quilt and Quilt it As You Go.  If you love to applique', or have never tried, this is a great opportunity to gather with fellow quilters and make a remarkable heirloom quilt that you will be very proud of.  Simply choose your colorway, grab your handwork basket and join in anytime.
I give credits for this photo to Mary Vaughan who won honorable mention at the NJ State Quilt Show in 2009.  She followed the inspiration of Kaffee Fasset's "Adaptation Of A Coverlet"  to create this beauty.  We will be following Mary's lead and recreate our adaptation of this quilt.
