Let the fun and creativity begin! Marty will help you with the initial set up of your domestic machine and then guide you as you explore the Sampler Templates from Westalee Designs. Each month we will use one or more of the templates to quilt a sampler block. Then use the blocks to make pillows, totes, lap throws, or a quilt.
