A sampler is a quilt containing a ‘sampling’ of many different quilt block patterns. Quilters often make these as a way to expand their patchwork making skills. In years past, a young lady would make a sampler quilt before she was married or before she left home so that she could refer to it later for pattern ideas.
Samplers are still a popular way for modern quilters to stretch their quilt making muscles today.
