Sister Sampler Quilts by AnneMarie Chany is a beautiful new book! AnneMarie took her love for sampler quilts and put into a format that any quilter can appreciate.

Sister Sampler Quilts - Review & Giveaway -

Each of the quilts includes two of the same block, but the coloring or fabric placement differs – making them sister blocks. I love this plan, you get to try a new block – twice – and odds are you will remember the subtle details that make each block better than the last. AND the blocks are all bound to work together well since you are using similar fabrics in each block.


I love the visual table of contents. And the quilt layouts later in the book are dynamic, and unique.

AnneMarie has included step by step photo tutorials for Half-Square Triangles, Flying Geese, and lots more, making it a great beginner book too! I always find something new in a book thou, no matter how experienced I am!

Sister Sampler Quilts - Review & Giveaway -

I had fun making these two Lady of the Lake blocks in my Serenity fabrics. I made the 9″ size and love how they are similar, but different. There’s 9″ and 12″ blocks both included in the book – it’s great to have options when you are planning your quilt.

*I have a copy of Sister Sampler Quilts to giveaway to one lucky winner!
