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.

The next pattern will be available Sunday evening March 26
The block patterns have started to disappear from the website as I upload new blocks! But there will be a quarterly merged pattern file upload for those who want to catch up.


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

Important Information
Pattern files will be available for a month, then they will be taken down so that this website doesn't get so overcrowded that it isn't user friendly, so pop here to the website regularly and download the files so you don't miss out!
