London Town Sampler Pattern Book
Twelve original blocks created for the London Town Sampler, a quilt that will take you on a wonderful, whistle-stop tour of the British capital...
We'll start our tour with a bird's eye view of the city from the London Eye, visiting Westminter Abbey and Big Ben before taking a cab to Buckingham Palace to catch the changing of the guard, next we're heading down river to the Tower of London and on to Greenwich to see the Cutty Sark, then it's off to the West End for some fabric shopping at Liberty's before a trip to the Park on the top deck of a London bus. And we'd better take a brolly, just in case.
