This course will help you learn patchwork and quilting as well as develop your  understanding and skills.
You will beginn working on a Sampler Quilt project (consisting of a 12 block design). A “sampler quilt”, as the rule implies, is a sample of many different styles of patchwork, usually based on the block system. These are then stitched together to make a quilt top. This is a nine week course.
