Fast & Fun Sampler Quilt Along - Everything you need to know!
Posted by Melissa Corry on Mar 24th 2023
Hi C & T friends, it’s me, Melissa Corry from Happy Quilting. I am a new author with the C & T Publishing family and so excited to be here. Today I am happy to be sharing a new quilt along that will be starting April 5th and I hope you will be joining me in all the fast & fun quilting.You can see all of the details for the Fast & Fun Sampler Quilt Along Here.
My Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book will be releasing with C & T Publishing tomorrow! It is a great book filled with 9 quilts all made with 1 set of 10” squares and a background fabric. In celebration of its release, I am hosting a Fast & Fun Sampler Quilt Along at my blog, Happy Quilting. I had so much fun working on the design for this quilt along. I used blocks from each of the 9 quilts in the Fast & Fun Lap Quilts Book and put them in this fun medallion/row quilt layout. It is a queen size quilt finishing at 92" x 92" and I am so looking forward to quilting it up along with all of you!
I have recently released the Fabric requirements for this quilt along. You can go here for a printable version. You will need: 2 Layer Cake/10" Stackers , 9 Yards of Background Fabric and 5 1/2 Yard of Backing Fabric. (The quilt will have a scrappy binding and a pieced backing, so fun!)
I am going to be making two Fast & Fun Sampler Quilts along with you. The first quilt I will be using two Sunnyside Layer Cakes by Camille Roskelley for Moda as shown above. The second quilt I will be using two Ally's Garden 10" Stackers by Dani Mogstad for Riley Blake Designs as shown below.
I wanted to show you what the Sampler Quilt would look like with both a light and a dark background. The sky is the limit when choosing your fabrics. Mix and match Layer Cakes, change up your backgrounds, or even make it scrappy. Just have fun making it your own.
This is going to be a super fun and super easy Quilt Along to participate in. No need to sign up or anything, just check back at Happy Quilting each Wednesday for the new block assignment. Then make the assigned blocks and share! Of course, we will be having lots of prizes along the way as well as Grand Prizes for anyone who finishes their quilt tops.
And that just about wraps it up! You have another week and a half to round up your fabric and the first blocks will be posted on April 5th!!! Again, you can find all of the details for this quilt along at my blog, Happy Quilting.
Now . . . Let's get Quilting Along!
