Building Blocks Quilt-As-You-Go Sampler Quilt

Building Blocks is a traditional quilt-as-you-go sampler quilt featuring twelve different quilt blocks, each pieced and quilted three or four times to create fourty-two unique quilt blocks. The resulting blocks were then put together with binding strips to create the finished throw-sized quilt.

I began designing this quilt in fall 2013 after realizing that my by-the-seat-of-my-pants approach to the Express Your Love Quilt Along hadn't gone very well. I wanted to create a project that would have more structure and a definite, single method to create the quilt blocks.

I was also feeling inspired to share lessons on blocks that had been my favorite since I started quilting: Nine Patch, Sawtooth Star, and Pinwheel Blocks. I also had fun designing brand new blocks using creative construction methods like the Slash Star block.

For the first time, I shared the spotlight of the quilt along with my husband Josh! We both quilted the blocks on videos posted throughout the year.
