Are you looking
for a fun quilt along to start this summer?
Cheryl Brickey of Meadow
Mist Designs and Paige
Alexander of Quilted Blooms are hosting a Modern Plus Sampler quilt along based on their new book Modern Plus Sign Quilts. This quilt along is great for both
individuals and quilt shops.
1. About the Modern
Plus Sign Sampler
The Modern Plus
Sampler is a free quilt along that will run from July 2018 until April 2019
that uses most of the blocks from the Modern Plus Sign Quilts book together in
a brand-new, lap-sized (63" x 78") quilt design!
As this quilt along is a compilation of all different blocks from the Modern
Plus Sign Quilts book, the book will be required for the quilt along. You can purchase the book through C&T
We are running this quilt along similarly
to Cheryl's previous mystery quilt alongs, a nice, slow pace with a set of
instructions posted the first Thursday of each month. The quilt
along will finish up in April 2019 with a fun reveal parade where you can show
off your quilt. Here is the schedule for the first few months:
May 3rd: Modern
Plus Sampler announcement
June 7th: Design
July 5th: Fabric
August 2nd: Piecing of the
instructions will be posted to both the Meadow
Mist Designs and Quilted
Blooms blogs as blog
posts (and can always be found on the Modern Plus Sampler page) and each instruction blog post will
contain a link to an easy-to-print, downloadable PDF version of the
3. Skill Level and Alternative Designs
Most of the quilt
will be traditionally pieced, but there will be a couple of appliqué blocks and
paper-pieced blocks. We encourage you to try these and learn some new
skills. If you would like to avoid appliqué and/or paper piecing, we will
be giving alternative instructions to avoid these methods. For example, Paige's version of the sampler
uses only traditionally pieced blocks (so no appliqué or paper-pieced blocks).
4. Facebook Group
We have over
3,000 members in our Meadow Mist
Designs Facebook Group sewing
together! Join the group today so you can share and see everyone else's fabric,
progress pictures, and finished quilts.
I hope that you
are planning on joining us for a fun quilt along! If you have any questions you
can email Cheryl at MMDmysteryquilts@gmail.com. We look forward to quilting
along with you!
