Tula Pink's City Sampler: 100 Modern Quilt Blocks
"The parameters I set for myself while writing this were simple, to create a book that made a complex and engaging quilt with a minimal amount of effort that even a relative beginner quilter can piece without inducing a headache. The blocks are divided into 6 sections by shape. My main focus was to create interesting compositions within a 6 inch square. I gave myself total creative freedom with three very important rules; NO applique, NO templates, NO funny stuff."
"Each block is numbered with a space to name the block yourself. I believe that a quilt is more about the maker than the pattern writer. My quilt is about me but your quilt is about you and that may be the most important factor about this book and the one thing that will make this quilt what it will be."
