From Karen, Jo and Lynn - "We have been working hard together over the last couple of months to bring you a second stunning modern sampler quilt! Following on from last year’s super-sized blocks we have zoomed in for some smaller blocks and motifs, offering a wider variety and a few new techniques. Our trademark folk art vibe is still in evidence, along with our love of nature and the modern ‘off-grid’ aesthetic that makes our quilts so original and enjoyable to stitch. You will receive patterns every month for a selection of blocks. The full timetable will be provided prior to the start of the BOM. We will also provide instructions for finishing the quilt top and suggestions for quilting."
