Simple Sampler Quilt Along Details
I’m so excited that some of you are wanting to quilt with me! If you are new to quilting, not sure where to start, or just love sharing in the experience – you are in the right spot! We will start with the most basic of blocks and proceed to a few more challenging, feel free to work at your own pace too – no pressure :)
My desire is to introduce all the basic, necessary skills for a quilter. As you see there are 16 blocks, each is 12″ with the sashing (white space between blocks) the quilt finishes at 58 inches square.
I have the fabrics pictured in the quilt, 1/2 yard of 8 fabrics. More than enough :) if you are pulling scraps the largest square we cut will be 7 3/4″, just find lots of scraps that work well together. 2 yards of white, or neutral of your choice. (I got my white – here!) Eventually when we make a back, you will need 4 yards, and 1/2 a yard for binding – I think mine will be scrappy with the extra bits.
|8 – 1/2 yard cuts + 2 yards of white|
Other needed items ::
Sewing machine :)
Rotary cutter & mat
Marking pen or pencil
I have made a button for those participating!
Add it where you like and spread the word :) I will compile a list of participants from yesterday’s post and this one, and make a list next week so we can cheer each other along!
Are you ready!? There’s time to shop for fabric, if needed, I plan to post the first two blocks mid-week next week.
