Free Chatelaine BOW Sampler Quilt

Every Wednesday I will publish a new block pattern as a PDF file for you to download. Each file will include a coloured diagram,cutting and piecing instructions plus any required full size templates. I will also include photos, tips and tutorials where applicable to assist in constructing your blocks.
The blocks will be a selection of my favorites (or my own adapted version) and the difficulty level will vary from week to week. I will also offer a final layout for the quilt, (including borders) as the weeks progress or you are free to chose a layout of your own. Even if you chose not to participate in the full sampler quilt, you can collect each block pattern and use them as a reference for other projects you may have planned in the future.
The blocks will finish at 6" square (6 1/2" unfinished)
