Modern Sampler Quilt Along Blocks G, H and I

Man! I’ve been playing catch up on this quilt along, the Modern Sampler Quilt Along with Salty Oat!


You know I’m more of a bright color kinda quilter, so this one has been a challenge. But I like the low contrast with a pop of color! But this is a very challenging pattern and I got really frustrated doing these blocks! I think they came out quite nice despite the lack of instructions!


This is Block G. I didn’t do any measuring around the curves. And I like how they turned out. Not perfect, but I think they are pretty close to perfect.


And Block H. This turned out pretty nice. A LOT of practice with Y seams for one stinkin’ 12″ block! Has anyone else made this one? I’m curious how you made it. I considered doing it as an english paper pieced block, like I sew hexagons by hand. But then decided that would take way longer than I wanted to spend on this one….


And lastly, Block I. I’m actually in love with this one! It’s pretty near perfect! (If I do say so myself…) I took my friend Debbie’s advice and did the strips as paper pieced triangles. It worked! Nice and quick!

And look at those Y seam corners! Oh, yes!


Please ignore the horrible picture, but this is the quilt so far! I do like the quilt, but making it has had some frustrated moments!


Three more blocks down. Nine blocks done. Three to go!


  1. This is beautiful. So subtle and effective. And those y seamed mitred corners look difficult but very effective.

    I adore what you’re doing with these blocks!! Having some regrets myself but OH WELL.

    The challenge for me would be the low-volume prints… pop, except for that pink. I think this is looking great.
