Learn how to quilt while creating a sleek, stylish, contemporary sample quilt! A time-honored way to learn how to quilt is to make a sampler quilt. Each block or part of the quilt addresses a technique every quilter should have at their disposal.

Quilt teacher Marianne Hatton has compiled her experiences guiding beginning students into an all-in-one technique, design, and pattern book. Create unique sampler quilts with a contemporary flair using her Grid Map technique while learning how to work with blocks of varying sizes. Monochromatic examples teach readers the importance of value and contrast without color getting in the way.
