The Simple Sampler Quilt Along - Week 1

Posted on October 03, 2016 by Rae | 1 comment

It's begun!  The Sewing Directory and Kerry Green have teamed up to create the Simple Sampler Quilt Along!

The sampler is designed for beginners, showing you new skills as you progress ending with a beautiful lap quilt or a bigger one if you wish!  It's also for more experienced quilters.

Here are our first two blocks, made up by Jacqui.

We're using Dashwood Studio's Distant Dreams collection designed by Phyllida Coroneo as well as their brilliantly versatile Twist collection.  

Why take part?

See the Simple Sampler Quilt Along page on The Sewing Directory's website but in a nutshell:

  • Learn patchwork and quilting skills including piecing squares, triangles and foundation piecing
  • Discounted fabrics!  Use our code SIMPEQAL at the checkout at Fabric HQ until 17th October and get 15% off your Simple Sample Quilt Along fabric when you order online!
  • Each month we'll pick a winner from everyone who shares their progress on social media using the hashtag #simplesamperQAL

There are lots of other reasons to join in outlined on Fiona's post with all the other info on how to join in, as well as all the patterns written by Kerry.  You can find all the info here and see Fiona, Julie, Kerry and our progress on our Instagram pages as well as seeing what others are up to by checking out the hashtag #simplesamplerQAL.  Don't forget to use the hashtag if you're joining in for your chance to win prizes each month of the QAL and that you can get your fabrics using our 15% discount code SIMPLEQAL before 17th October.  We look forward to seeing what you make!
