Making the Lancaster Diamond Sampler: A 19th Century Quilt Design by Fanny's Friend
The Lancaster Diamond Sampler was made by one anonymous person, referred to as "Fanny's friend." Fanny S. Bucher and her friend were sharing fabric and block designs as they made their unique diamond-shaped blocks into sampler quilts - quilts meant for teaching and learning the craft. As you follow along with Fanny's friend, learn - or re-learn - the skills needed for making your own quilt. Over 500 instructional images and diagrams of quilts, blocks, and needlework, the basics of fabric selection, grain, placement, and seaming are demonstrated. Hardcover w/ spiral. Author, 2013. 224 pages.
