I’m taking part in Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell’s virtual sew-along. Last year they co-hosted the “Sewcial Bee Sampler“. (I did not participate but it was really cool to see everyone’s finished quilts!) When they announced that they were going to do another sampler quilt entitled, “Community Sampler”, I was so thrilled!
I’m doing the larger lap size that has the scrappy borders. We are currently in week 6. You can check out Sharon’s and Maureen’s blogs to get the PDF patterns if you want to join in! It’s free and you can jump in at any time. 🙂
Every Wednesday, these fabulous ladies release a new block pattern or finishing step. Plus, they have blog posts on sewing tips and tutorials that are very helpful with construction. I’m having so much fun sewing one quilt block each week and seeing SO many different takes on these traditional blocks. I love how everyone’s is different and uniquely beautiful. It’s super cool. You can see everyone’s Community Sampler (including mine!) on Instagram by checking out #communitysampler.
I haven’t done Week 6’s block (yet) but I will before Wednesday gets here! This project gives me something to look forward to every week. 😊
Have you ever participated in a quilt-along? Are you making a #communitysampler too? It’s really neat to see everyone’s blocks. I love seeing the different fabrics different people pulled. There are so many great color palettes!!! 😁
I’m inspired and I hope you are too!
