Create beautiful and unique modern samplers with Sister Sampler Quilts. Traditional piecing methods combine with fun modern layouts in these 3 samplers with a twist. What's the twist? Instead of creating just one of each block, all blocks in this book are made as "sister" pairs. Create them to your liking as identical twins, color inverted pairs, or simply scrappy sets.
Inside are 25 interchangeable sister blocks and 3 sampler quilt designs that challenge traditional grid layouts with fun, innovative settings. The quilts beautifully bridge the gap between traditional and modern. Whether you’re a beginner or a more advanced quilter, you’ll enjoy practicing and perfecting quilting basics, like half-square triangles, flying geese and hourglass blocks, to beautiful effect. Modern traditional quilting is the perfect way to blend old and new techniques to create a quilt that’s uniquely yours!

It quickly turned into a passionate hobby and, in 2010, she started her quilt pattern company, Gen X Quilters (www.genxquilters.com). Quilting marries creativity and precision, the perfect combination for her as a trained engineer. AnneMarie is the founder and former president of the Columbus Modern Quilt Guild (now the Columbus Modern Quilters). She teaches at local quilt shops and enjoys presenting lectures for guilds on modern quilting. She has appeared on Quilting Arts TV, and her designs are published in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Quiltmaker’s Quilts from 100 Blocks, Fons & Porter's Easy Quilts, American Quilter Magazine,Generation Q Magazine and Modern Quilts Unlimited.
