Whenever Marti takes a trunk show to a class, students always love the Carpenter's Wheel samplers.

They pre-date the Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks books, but all the blocks can be found in Volume 1 in at least two sizes, sometimes more.

We hope you will enjoy seeing some of Marti's favorite old and new quilts. Most of the antique quilts could be made today using Perfect Patchwork Templates! We'll be updating this section from time to time.
