Yvonne Roberts' Sampler

I met Yvonne Roberts in Seattle many years ago, and she invited me to teach workshops in her native New Zealand. It was a wonderful experience. She sent me a picture of this cheerful sampler she made partially with blocks from my book, Block Party. She said she wanted to make the sampler "as one's mother would have ..using leftover fabrics from previous quilts I'd made over the year's. The background was calico (muslin, I believe you call it). I was really pleased with the end result and now will hand quilt it."
