Quilter's Planner Sampler Quilt Along Starting

Looking for a good quilt along to start the year off?  The Quilter's Planner is just starting a year long quilt along for a sampler quilt I designed :)

The sampler contains instructions for 12 different blocks and 2 different settings, an on-point setting and a traditional setting.  All of the instructions can be found in the pattern magazine that is included with a Quilter's Planner (affiliate link).

No automatic alt text available.

The quilt along is structured for one block each month (if you are making the on-point design you will have to make doubles of a few of your favorite designs to get to the 17 blocks in the quilt) with Facebook and Instagram link ups for prizes each month.

One really nice thing is the entire pattern is in the magazine so you can work at your own pace.  You can click over to the Quilter's Planner blog to learn more about the sampler including how to linkup for prizes and tips for completing each block.

Here is January's block...

I am planning on joining in, are you?  (I did not make either of the sampler quilts due to scheduling so I am excited for the chance to sew one.)

I am planning on using some of my Bonnie and Camille fabrics using the on-point layout. I am not sure if I am going to go with a white background or maybe a really light blue?  

Remember, you can get your planner right here and the included magazine contains all of the instructions for the sampler (as well as many other patterns).


Happy sewing!

  1. I love the sampler quilt you created for the planner this year, Cheryl, and it is going to be fun to see all the different versions being made. Great choice in fabrics for your version!

  2. What a gorgeous sampler! The colors are fantastic and I really love the varied blocks and they way some of them mimic one another but are different. Kitty’s photography makes me think I should take my quilts outside more, but since we are in snow covered, -2 weather, it won’t be for awhile.

  7. Very fun samplers! This is the year of the UFO, (except for your Plus quilt along), so I'll have to pass on this one.

    1. Hi Nadine - The fabric in the first two photos I believe from Alison Glass, I love her saturated rainbow colors.
