BasicGrey fabric Quilt Alongs Sampler Spree Sew Along

Sampler Spree Quilt Along (Week 7)

Happy Wednesday! Wednesday = 3 more blocks for the Sampler Spree Quilt Along to share with you. I had a bit of a crazy week (new pattern writing, pattern testing, catching up on orders, etc.) so I haven’t gotten around to putting these blocks into my scrappy leaf layout quilt yet. (Soon! I pinky swear.) As always, these quilt block patterns can be found in Susan Ache’s Sampler Spree book. Let’s meet the newbies!

Fabric + Layout

  • Fabric: I’m sewing with the lovely Cider fabric by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics
  • Layout: I designed a scrappy leaf layout plan found here. I’ll be plugging the 6″ sampler blocks in the layout in the designated areas, alternated with assorted print squares. This is a general mockup since I haven’t plugged in the individual sampler block designs:

It’s never too late to join! Get all the official details of the Sampler Spree Quilt Along here (including the 10-week breakdown + bonus layout options). The group will be making 10 blocks per week in a scavenger hunt style – which means a random block assignment from the book each week in a certain color. I’m making 3-4 per week instead. The good news is you get to make your own rules.
