Stunning Brazilian Sampler

I simply love to receive “Show and Tell” from people who have made projects using the designs in my books. This photo came all the way from Brazil and was made by Jane Bertolaccini. It is a great use of the varied blocks available in 300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks and the setting is simply stunning.
Jane’s wrote: I would like to share with you the attached photograph of a lap quilt I have just finished. Last Christmas I got “300 Paper-Pieced Quilt Blocks” as a gift, and so far – due to lack of time – I had only made a pillow. Now I feel like I have done the book justice! The quilt measures 64″ X 64″ and is formed by 32 log cabin blocks and 30 foundation blocks from Carol’s book (plus an appliqu├ęd squirrel and a Dresden Plate, which I have included at my daughter’s request!).

There are no quilters in my city besides me… but I have been teaching some women and now that they have seen my quilt they are all dying to order their own copies of the book!

Thanks so much for sharing your quilt Jane and for sharing the fun of paper piecing in Brazil!

If you have made a project from one of my books that you would like to share, please email me your jpg image to

May all your points be perfect!
