PLAY FOR FUN
PLAY FOR PRIZES
(why not DO BOTH?)
Back on November 1, 2015 and every week until January 4, 2016, we have shared 3 free patterns from MODA on our BLOG every Sunday Morning
These 6" block patterns were created for you by the folks at MODA FABRICS. These blocks were designed to increase piecing skills and maybe help you add new techniques to your quilting experience. That will depend on where you are in your quilting journey. I learned enough making my sampler blocks to be able to say that I am a better at piecing than I was when I started my first blocks on back on Halloween night 2015. I still have plenty to learn, that is for sure and that ever expanding capacity to learn, share and build skills is one of the reasons I love quilt making so much.
A very appealing pattern for setting your blocks into a completed quilt top was provided by MODA (photo below)- CLICK HERE to find all of these patterns that you can download and make your Sampler Shuffle Quilt.
if you want to design your own setting pattern?
