Jennifer Sampou --

Stitch a scrap-friendly quilt and pillow inspired by Jennifer Sampou's travels to Thailand.
The best-selling fabric designer pairs paper-pieced and appliqued motifs with a background of easy-to-sew strips. Gender-neutral and customizable, this artistically modern design is a definite showpiece. The full-size pattern includes complete instructions to make a quilt and a matching pillow.
