January 14 was the first lesson of making the Sampler Medallion quilt in 2012. During our trip in Australia we experienced the possibilities of the medallion quilt. So are we happy to have this type of quilt for the sampler in the course for beginning quilters? We took some books and Bea made a pattern. The first quilt was OK, yet we missed what we call the 'wouw' effect. Henk tried same pattern, other fabric. Sampler the Second was born. Than we changed the pattern a bit. The block in the middle is easier to make and more attractive too.
So I like to present to you the first block of Sampler the Third. It is a nine patch block. four straight blocks, four blocks with three triangles and one diamond block in the center.
Also the second picture is made by Bahar Madani during the introduction at the start of the course and showing Field of Dreams a Sarah Fielke Dolly quilt.
At Tuesday morning February 14 the second course for beginners is planned. Maybe you like to make Sampler the Third with Bea?
