Simple Sampler Quilt Along

Two weeks ago we launched our first ever quilt along - The Simple Sampler Quilt Along. We have an excellent series of tutorials written by Kerry Green from Very Kerry Berry, and author of 500 Quilt Blocks.   

My first few blocks

Kerry designed the quilt to be sewn by a beginner, growing their skills as they work their way through the tutorials. So it starts off with simple blocks such as the 9 patch and the bordered 4 patch, just sewing squares and rectangles, and works up to foundation paper piecing (which I have to admit I have never done before).

Kerry's tutorials are clear and concise, with lots of photos, to make them easy to follow. We are just on week 3, so there is still time to catch up if you'd like to join us. We've set a slow pace so it won't be hard to keep up with, and we're having a break over Christmas to allow people to catch up. 

The Quilt Along is being sponsored by Fabric HQ who are providing a month gift voucher for their site as a prize. There are already over 100 beautiful quilt block pictures on Instagram, click here to view them.

I do hope you'll sew along with us. Find the full schedule and tutorials on The Sewing Directory.
