Southwest Sampler By Pat Huston
My sister’s trip to Arizona yielded this wonderful Christmas gift of assorted fat quarters from the Southwest. These fabrics were not in my normal color range, but they were inspirational. I challenged myself to use them all in one quilt. I met that challenge and had virtually no scrap! Extra geese were used on the back. The only fabric I added was the black background. Eleanor Burns’s sampler inspired the layout for sample blocks of various sizes. I used blocks from her book, from EQ, from “Angle Play Blocks” by Margaret Miller, and some of my own.
