Time to start finishing your Sampler Quilt? If you’ve pieced all your 12 blocks, I’m certain you’ve already been playing with your layout and you’ve probably come up with a couple (if not a few) possible layout options on your own.
I want to share my layout with you including the coordinating block/month numbers…
There are four pieced sections…
You will notice that the 4 pieced sections in my layout are identical (divided by color) ~ there are 2 full and 2 half blocks in each section, in the same order. They are all simply rotated in a different direction. If you decide to follow this layout shown above:
1) piece all 4 sections
2) piece 3 bottom columns/sections together
3) add top row/section.
or you could position all the rows/sections horizontally shown below in option 2…
You can move around the blocks in each row to come up with a new layout.
Here is a third option shown below. The two blue rows are identical and the two purple rows are identical.
There are several ways you can put these blocks together… do what suits YOU! I’ve really enjoyed offering this Block of the Month, thanks so much to everyone who took time to send me messages, comment on posts and add pics to the flickr pool (Maureen!). I love my quilt (yes I’m keeping this one!) and I hope you love yours too!
