A sampler quilt is made from a sample of blocks. These quilts are quite popular for beginning quilting classes. Often the instructor will plan the sampler so that each block will allow the students to learn a new quilting skill while working on that particular block.
The blocks in a sampler quilt may all be the same size or different sizes. They can be set with sashing, alternate blocks, on point or just side by side with another sampler block.
