I am passionate about paper piecing! In 2014 that led to this FREE block of the month website, it was time to share some of my patterns and encourage quilters to learn paper piecing techniques.
Welcome to the Adventurously Epic Sampler Quilt Along.
I will upload one block weekly during 2017 and 2018 until we have created this 100 block quilt.
Yes all 100 blocks have been designed but not all are revealed yet!
The blocks are all 7.5 inches square so they will be 7 inches once sewn into the quilt.
My fabrics for this BOW all came from my favorite local Denver quilt shop Wooden Spools!
If you are ever in Denver it is a MUST see quilt shop check out their website: http://www.woodenspools.com/ They BUY and SELL cotton quilting fabric!
The website says: Give new creative life to your fabric stash by selling us your unused and excess fabric. Find other newly revived fabrics that have made their way to our shelves. A visit to Wooden Spools is like taking part in a fabric exchange every day of the week!!!
My chosen 3 fabrics/colors are:
Background fabric - Kona black
Light color - scrappy beiges
Dark color - batiks in varying colors
This is an oversized (98" x 98") KING sized quilt when completed with all 100 blocks, 2" sashing and a 3" border as displayed in the pattern diagram.
I am not providing fabric yardage requirements for this BOW it really depends on how many colors you choose to use. I have bought 4 yards of background fabric but it is in a color/fabric that I can easily buy more of in the future if needed.The majority of my other fabrics are scrappy fat quarter sized pieces and I can add colors or fabrics as I sew the quilt and play with the layout.
Weekly block patterns upload by Sunday evening (MST) throughout 2017 and 2018

Thanks to all those people sewing along and sharing via Facebook and Instagram!!!! You've made some awesome blocks.
The key to a fantastic quilt using this pattern is CONTRAST!
Choose a background fabric then a dark and a light fabric/color that will stand out from that background
