Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing my Sampler Spree Quilt Blocks November Update. I got behind on my schedule of making five blocks a week sometime in September and finally set aside some time to get going on these again. I’m not sure if I’ll still be able to finish up the blocks by my original […]

Sampler Spree Quilt Blocks Update featured by Top US Quilt Blog, A Quilting Life

Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a Sampler Spree Quilt Blocks Update. I know lots of quilters sewed along at the quick pace of ten blocks a week and have finished their quilts. But I’ve been taking my time on this one and really enjoying the slower pace. I had to put everything aside for some […]

Sampler Spree Week 8 Featured by Top US Quilt Blog, A Quilting Life

Hello, friends, and happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing my Sampler Spree Week 8 blocks. I realize how much I enjoy having a weekly quilt along to participate in.

Wednesday WIP: Sampler Spree Week 5 from Patchwork Sampler Blog

There is still not a lot of sewing at my house right now, but it is fun piecing these few Sampler Spree blocks every week. For week 5, the color is red and ten blocks were assigned.

Here are my blocks.

week 5 sampler spree

When the color red popped up, I found I do not have a lot of red in my modern fabric stash. There is pink, fuchsia, and coral, but not much red. Luckily, I had enough to piece these blocks though. I also may have done a little stash enhancement shopping to correct this wrong!!

The week 6 color is ...

Wednesday WIP: Green Sampler Spree Blocks from Patchwork Sampler Blog

I am having fun with the Sampler Spree QAL. Making these blocks is like eating potato chips. You just can’t stop. They are easy to make and only take a few minutes. Instant gratification!

When the color green came up for last week’s blocks, I was not sure I had enough green in my scrap bin for all ten blocks. Green is not my favorite color. I find it hard to work with so I don’t buy much. Apparently, I purchased and used plenty over the years because there was more than enough to complete these blocks ...

Wednesday WIP: Sampler Spree Quilt-Along from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Have you joined the Sampler Spree Quilt-Along? It is sponsored by Moda and is based on Susan Ache’s book, Sampler Spree. Each week a specific color is announced along with 10-12 blocks to piece using that color. It was so helpful to have my scraps sorted by color. I can just pull out the appropriate bin and start cutting!

I am having so much fun making these little six-inch blocks. The quilt-along started in June but it is not too late to join in. Check out Moda’s blog post here for more information. Week one’s color ...

Sampler Spree fun with a rainbow of fabric squares from The Crafty Quilter

Last week I cut a rainbow of 3 3/4″ squares using fabric from each of my scrap bins. I was preparing for a project I’m doing with my daughter’s 5th grade class (she’s the teacher) involving hexagons and tessellating shapes. I’ll give you the full report on that later next week. Anyways, it turns out that 2 1/2″ squares will work better, but I didn’t want to trim the previously cut squares. Too much work and who wants to waste fabric? I had a bunch of mini charm packs that were perfect and ...
