Tula Pink’s City Sampler

Check out Veronica’s fabulous version of the Tula Pink City Sampler. For the past few months, Catriona has been running a City Sampler quilt along with various people doing their own unique version and at their own speed. Veronica zoomed ahead and is the first to finish her quilt and some people have just started. This is a Friday morning activity (10:15 – 13:00). I’ll post more of them as they are completed.Veronica's quilt
