My First Sampler Quilt

Block3bI love learning new things, especially when it involves sewing. At the beginning of the year, I joined The Splendid Sampler Quilt Along hosted by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson. These two are experts in their field! They are teachers, bloggers, book authors, fabric designers, and of course, quilters. I love the structure of the quilt along. It’s superbly organized, and each block pattern is beautifully written, with clear directions and colorful graphics.Block9 Each week we receive two patterns for an original 6.5 inch square that has been designed and shared by different quilters. I have my basket of coordinating fabrics ready, and soon after the pattern is published, the excitement begins with the selection of the fabrics, then the measuring and cutting, and lastly the construction.  Then comes the surprising and pleasing result!block14A gullsReaders, if you want to jump in and learn over 100 different quilt block designs, it’s not too late! We are only 15 blocks in at this point. At the end of the year, we will all have over 100 blocks to put together into a quilt. The best part is that the quilt along is absolutely free!Block 15

Happy Sewing!
