Moda Shuffle Sampler Block Quilt Along begins Nov 1st

JOIN  us Nov 1st as we follow along with Moda's Sampler Block Shuffle. We will post our blocks on Instagram and this blog. Each week Moda will provide 2 -3 free block patterns with tips and teaching tools. Sharpen you skills and techniques.  
At the finish you will have 30 blocks and 132 Flying Geese  to "shuffle" into a design of your choosing OR to "shuffle" them into an arrangement seen in the quilt shown above.
The arrangement of these blocks and flying geese will be up to you.  
You can "shuffle" them as the quilt  pictured above or come up with your own design.  

We will be offering 5 of the Moda Sampler Block Shuffle Kits with various fabric collections for $88.00.  
Moda sugguests to begin with a Layer Cake, Jelly Roll and a few F8ths or FQ's for variation.  We have put together some collections from different artists.  
Your block kit will include:
Free PDF downloadable patterns each week 
1 Gardenvale Layer Cake or 42 !0" squares
1 Gardenvale Jelly Roll or 40 2.5" strips
$10 worth of additional FQ's or F8's to add to your blocks for variety 

From left to right the collections are:
Miss Kate/Hello Darling, Simply Colorful, Aloha Girl
Joyeux Noel is bottom left and Gardenvale is bottom right

The Moda Sampler Block Shuffle finishing Kit will be $48.13 and will be sold separately. This is for the large setting squares, triangles, borders and binding as seen in the horizontal color block/border stripes as seen in the top picture.  We will offer kits for the Joyeaux Noel, Gardenvale, and the Miss Kate/Hello Darling Collections.  For the Aloha and Simply Colorful kits you will need to purchase your own fabrics.   
Remember to send us pictures of your blocks and we will post them as we sew along. 

 Remember how fun these Quilt Alongs can be?  I just finished the binding on my Apple Pie Quilt.
 I love the cheeriness of this quilt.  I learned so much from sewing each block, putting them on point, and piecing the sashing strips.    The Moda Sampler Shuffle Block quilt will be a fun experience too!

Quilting on the Apple Pie Quilt was done by Leisha Farnsworth.

See you Nov 1st!
