Inspired by a 1940s sampler quilt, Alex and Ricky take on the challenge of designing their own modern day version. With the challenge complete, they welcome the co-founder of the LA Modern Quilt Guild, Latifah Saafir. They chat with her about her history and then Latifah shares a fun technique for creating a block that looks like a cross-stitch pattern.

Watch Alex, Ricky, and Latifah in Show 2502, when it debuts Sunday, July 14, 2019.

Love the antique sampler. Please post a pic so we can study and enjoy it. Great job on both your reproductions.
