CHILI SAMPLER BLACK is a fun-to-make pieced quilt for the beginner to advanced quilter. The pattern makes three sizes of CHILI SAMPLER BLACK: 53″ x 69″ lap quilt, 27″ x 35″ wall hanging, 13 1/2″ x 17 1/2″ miniature. Whichever size you choose, dramatic color makes this quilt HOT!
Twenty asymmetrical blocks contain 25 chilies, each a little different shape or position, made entirely of half-square triangles, squares and rectangles. The backgrounds consist of assorted black fabrics. With names like “Squiggles,” “Hottie,” and “Siesta,” the blocks are fun and easy to assemble.
The blocks are quilted in the ditch, and the Chili Poem and 16 Chile Names are either hand embroidered, machine quilted, or simply written in Pigma pen.
A Braided Border of colorful chili fabrics with a black 1/2″ binding complete the quilt.
The BLACK CHILI SAMPLER is equally dramatic in calicoes, tone on tone fabrics, or batiks. Foundation piecing is not used. Striped and diagonal fabrics are not suitable.
Total of 60 pages in a 9″ x 12″ plastic bag.
