Sampler Spree Quilt Along (Week 10)

Here it is – the final week of the Sampler Spree Quilt Along. It feels like the summer flew by – I can’t believe the kids are back in school already – nor that I managed to stay on task and get this quilt top put together. It’s heading out to the quilter tomorrow! I shared a few pics last week and have a few more! I’ve got to admit, I was super happy to have a quick and easy layout plan to finish it up.

Fabric + Layout

  • Fabric: I’ve been using a mix of Cider/Persimmon fabric collections by BasicGrey for Moda Fabrics.
  • Layout: I designed my own Scrappy Leaf layout plan and have shared the full instructions here. (I just updated the original post so it is complete with all the assembly instructions and diagrams.) Below is a basic mockup just to give you the gist of the plan I was going off of. All those little squares represent areas where you could plug in the sampler blocks… I opted to alternate mine assorted 6-1/2″ print squares so I didn’t have to make as many sampler blocks. Obviously, there is a lot of wiggle room – do as you’d like!

This quilt has me SO excited for cooler weather, sweaters, apple cider, and crunchy leaves. (It was 106+ today where I live.) I just finished adding the border and piecing the backing – I just need to go drop it in the mail. You’ll have to wait to see which border print I went with – any guesses? (HINT – it’s not the Vanilla Grunge background print shown in the mockup).

It doesn’t matter that it’s the last week of the official sew along. Grab a copy of the Sampler Spree book and go at your own pace. There are over 100 beautiful sampler blocks to choose from – I only made 33 of them for my Scrappy Leaf layout.
