Sensational Sampler

Here's a new pattern I put together recently. It's a lapghan of sampler blocks. It could also be an afghan depending on how many blocks you made. There are a total of 12 blocks, but I made 16 - 8" blocks and put them together 4X4. I just doubled up on a couple of my faves to total 16 blocks. With the border, it turned out to be 37"X37". Don't limit yourself to just these two items though. Think dishcloths, pillows, washcloths, shawls etc. There are many items you could make with these blocks. I hope you enjoy them and learn something new as well. 

You can purchase a complete pdf file with all twelve block patterns for $2.98 by clicking this button:

For the FREE version, each block pattern is posted separately on my blog. Here are links to each:


  1. Looks beautiful, Melinda! Love the colors and all the pretty patterns! ~tina

  2. That is so pretty!!

    Did you make 12 different patterns, with a couple of the patterns repeated to make a total of 16 squares? Did you just randomly choose patterns to use for your blocks?

    It turned out lovely!!! :D

  3. That is a great sampler lapghan! I think I'm gonna have ta try one.
