I did buy the kindle version, (although I would have loved the printed version, but knew that it would get lost with all the books) I understand that there will be another internet sampler being made with the aid of the book, and I urge all people to go on this journey, you will learn so much about sewing, the friendship, and mostly yourself.
I have only one small bugbear, and that is that I really would have like to see how more ideas on setting the blocks, how the designers would have or did. The ideas in the book are few, but with all things with this sampler, there are very amazing ideas coming from last year's participant who are posting their finished quilt on line.
This book and the Facebook page is a gift that keeps on giving.
The actual block in the book are good, offering different type learning experiences and skills, they are 6" blocks, but I like that as they can be accomplished with just using scraps. What I really like about them is that you can make them your own, different material can change the whole look of the block, add some stitching or embellishment and ......really the sky is the limit. The book offers the basis and you can stick to that but with a little imagination - a wonderful unique quilt, cushion whatever can be made - the only limitation is yourself.
All the blocks finish at six inches (no other size option is provided). Many of the blocks are applique (using whatever technique you prefer; however, the patterns have been reversed for fusible applique), some are pieced, some paper pieced, and several are embroidered or have embroidery on them. There's also one or two blocks with hexagons and a block that includes Dresden wedges. There are more than five sewing motif blocks. My favorite of those is a paper-pieced block called Stitching Fashion by Charise Randle that is a dress with a spool of thread and needle...very cute. It is the block shown at the top center of the book cover (above the title).
There are five quilts shown in the quilt gallery. The 100-Block Sampler quilt is a great way of viewing all of the blocks in the book. There are no instructions for constructing the quilts in the gallery. The full-sized patterns are on tear out sheets at the back of the book and the pages are printed on both sides which can be a pain sometimes. As mentioned above, applique designs on the pattern sheets have been reversed for fusible applique.
In summary, if you like the looks of the blocks shown on the front and back covers of this book and you are looking for a collection of six inch blocks, then you are likely to love this book.
