Welcome to the Fun and Fancy Sampler Quilt. This cute sampler pattern creates a generous size lap quilt with space for some amazing quilting designs. Learn effective cutting techniques, piecing skills, simple applique, easing, chain piecing, mitering borders and many more tips to quickly complete this fun project.
This Fun and Fancy Sampler was designed as a companion pattern to Kate’s Fun and Fancy: Path to Ruler Work Quilting book. Together they allow you to make and quilt a beautiful sampler quilt while learning skills that will make you a better piecer and quilter.
The Fun and Fancy Path to Ruler Work Quilting features quilting designs for each block in this quilt, along with border and fill options. You can use the quilting designs and templates from the Fun and Fancy Collection or quilt it your own way. However you choose to complete your sampler, it a fun learning adventure to advance your quilting skills. Kate Quinn also plans to offer future quilts along featuring this Fun and Fancy Sampler quilt.
Kate recommends using the Westalee Design 3 piece Adjustable Locking Ruler Starter Set created by Leonie West to cut the fabric for this project. Her cut down video tutorial features these fabulous tools to make that part of the process easy, fast, and accurate. Other tools may be used but the pattern may require some conversion to use other cutting tools.
Kate highlights the versitile Westalee Design 7" Adjustable Locking Ruler as part of her Quilt Sampler.

Hi, I'm Kate Quinn
Owner of FabriKated Quilts, Sew Steady Promoted Instructor - Brand Ambassador and Westalee Design Accredited Teacher
My fascination with quilting began when I received a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt as a wedding present in 1991. The gift of a second scrappy quilt further solidified my love of fabrics and colors. I made my first quilt to celebrate the birth of my first child around 1993. I had loved quilting ever since. I love all styles and types of quilts from art to modern, from traditional pieced to applique. I also love how quilting is a connection through the ages and across generations.
In 2016, I also became a professional longarm quilter, opening FabriKated Quilts.
In 2016, I was first introduced to Westalee Designs Quilting Rulers and Templates. I was instantly hooked! Rulerwork tools have helped me advance my quilting skills more that I ever dreamt possible. I am thrilled and proud to be a Sew Steady Education Ambassador and a Westalee Design Acredited Teacher. The freedom and creativity generated by these tools is so satisfying. I want to give that power to quilters everywhere.
I love sharing my passion for quilting and art, passing on a centuries old tradition, and creating beautiful items of comfort. Let’s start FabriKating your next quilt!
