Choosing Fabrics for Your First Sampler Quilt with Valerie Nesbitt
Classes with Valerie Nesbitt • Educational, G, 01-Sep-2018

Fabric design house Stof have a current range entitled Vintage Roses, that would also work well and you could ask your local quilt shop about.
We worked with Creative Quilting to put together a kit which is specially arranged for Your First Sampler quilt. You can purchase this kit through the shop – just click here.
