Modern Plus Sampler QAL {Fabric Selection}

I think it should come as no surprise that I am going to sew along with the Modern Plus Sampler Quilt Along hosted by my good friends Cheryl (Meadow Mist Designs) and Paige (Quilted Blooms). The quilt combines most of the plus blocks from their awesome book, Modern Plus Sign Quilts, into a beautiful 63″ x 78″ sampler quilt. The Quilt Along runs from now (July 2018) through April 2019 with a new set of directions revealed on the first Thursday of each month.

Well, yesterday was the first Thursday of July, so the first set of instructions was released: the fabric requirements! The pattern calls for 6 fabrics, and I wanted to use what I have in my stash.

The top row from left to right are my Fabrics A, B, and C: Kaffe Fassett Shot Cotton in Pudding, Kona Cotton in Cerise, and Kona Cotton in Hibiscus. The bottom row from left to right are my Fabrics D, E, and F: Kona Cotton in Silver, Kona Cotton in Pink, and Kona Cotton in Pomegranate.

I think it is really neat that the fabrics can look differently based on how they are arranged. In the second photo, the fabrics are in order with Fabric A (Shot Cotton in Pudding) on top and Fabric E (Kona Cotton Pomegranate) on bottom.

My fabric choices were driven by the yardage I have on hand, and I can’t wait to see all the beautiful versions come together during the quilt along. Will you be joining us?

    I just bought some Konas. LOVE THEM. You’ve intrigued me now with your quilt along. I have never done one of those. I so want to go Modern. I think it will fit in perfectly with the quilt I have in mind (and the just bought Konas). Going to check it out now.

    Hello Yvonne; Such lovely fabrics you have chosen! No, I will not be joining. I have to many projects already and want to finish as many UFO’s as I can before starting any new projects. I look forward to seeing the posts that you share as your quilt comes together along the way! Thank you for sharing and have a splendid day!

  11. Gorgeous fabric pull you have for this QAL. I am so tempted; may just have to play a little on the sidelines.

  12. It looks like a fun design, and I love your choice of pomegranate! If only I had time. :(

    This time I am practising saying No. I am tempted to join in, the finish date is ages, but no. I really have to consolidate the wip I already have. And I need to make project bags! I do however love your fabrics and will watch and enjoy x

    You’ve chosen a beautiful color palette for the quilt along. I’m going to sit this one out, I really want to focus on getting some finishes this year.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
