Quilt Along With us! Let’s Make a Sampler!

by Beth Cooper

Hold on to your winter hats, boys and girls, we are getting ready to have some cold weather fun over here at Nancy’s Notions! We are starting a Quilt Along with our free quilt block series! This is a fun and easy project that is F-R-E-E free! And who doesn’t love fun, easy, and free? I certainly do!!

This is the perfect project for those cold dreary days that a lot of us are facing right now. (For those who are living in warmer climates, you’ll love this project too. Even if you’re wearing shorts.) Each week we release a new quilt block pattern. All you have to do is print it or download it and voila! You’re ready to start sewing!

There will be 20 blocks total. Each block is 12 1/2″ and will finish at 12″ once you have them all sewn together. This makes a gorgeous sampler!

This is an example of the sampler that can be made with
all of the free block patterns from Nancy’s Notions. This quilt by Cindy Valbert.

This quilt was made by Faye Pottorff.

Each week the next block in the series will be posted on our homepage and under “Quilting 101.” Under the Quilting 101 category, there is a sub-category called “Free Quilt Blocks.” All of the blocks will be able to be found there after they are posted each week.

(Disclaimer: These blocks were originally released by Nancy’s Notions in 2018, so some of you may already have them.)

There are no rules to this quilt along. There is no sign-up sheet. You don’t have to let us know that you are participating. All you have to do is download or print the free block patterns each week and make the blocks! It’s so easy! I would love to see some pictures of your process though! Feel free to send me pictures of your blocks as you sew along – I may just show them right here in my blog! You can email me at beth@nancysnotions.com.

I truly can’t wait to see everyone’s quilts when they are finished! What colors will you use? This quilt would be perfect for using up scraps or for that new fabric that you’ve had your eye on! When you get your quilt finished, be sure to send it in to Quilt & Tell! We love to see what you have made and your quilt may be chosen to be featured.

I’m not seeing fabric requirements listed anywhere. How many lights, mediums & darks are needed, and in what amounts. Thanks in advance
