"House Sampler" is the first Block-of-the-Month pattern I designed (several years ago) and it's still one of my bestsellers. Here's the original version.
I always love seeing how other quilters reinterpret my patterns by choosing different fabrics and colours. This week I received several photos in the mail from Jody Burch, a quilter from Tennessee, who made the pattern mainly in black, white, and red fabrics with a few other bright colours as accents. Isn't it amazing what a change fabric choice can make? Suddenly the pattern has transformed from country to contemporary! I love how the bold use of colour makes the graphics pop. (I'm sorry Jody--my scanner doesn't do the photo of your beautiful quilt justice.)
