2020 Saturday Sampler

Sign up now for the 2020 Saturday Sampler! We will meet at 11am on the Third Saturday of most months, February 2020 - January 2021. The April session will move up to April 11 to avoid being during the Treasure Shop Hop.

This year's Saturday Sampler will be made entirely using the Fossil Fern collection of fabrics. This will be a true sampler quilt, with a variety of block sizes and techniques, including appliqué and paper-piecing. The months in which we make the large 20" blocks, that will be all we make. In the months when we make smaller blocks, we will be making more than one block, often multiples of the same block, but sometimes different blocks. Since there isn't any sashing put between this year's blocks, we are asking you to purchase your own background fabric. Fossil Fern color 2M - Pastel Almond is what we recommend, but you may use whatever light fabric you choose. You will need 2.75 yards of your chosen background fabric.

You may purchase an optional Oops Bundle, which contains fat quarters and fat eighths of the fabrics used in the quilt. This is great for when you make a mistake, you know you have some extra fabric at hand to fix it!

You may also want to purchase the Creative Grids Cat's Cradle tool. It's not mandatory, but some of the blocks do have Cat's Cradle units in them, and this tool will make your life so much easier when it comes to making them!

Saturday Sampler Fine Print:

  1. Pay the sign-up fee, only $6 this year
  2. Purchase your first monthly kit for $6 at our first meeting on February 15, 2020

    1. You must come to the monthly meeting (usually the 3rd Saturday of every month) AND

  4. If you wish to participate in the monthly meeting and you don't live in the are, we are working on setting up a teleconferencing system so you can log in from home. Contact us for the login details. If you are participating remotely, as long as you login and have your block done, we will send you the next block for only the price of shipping it to you.
All of these fabrics can be re-ordered, so you may join at any time, even after we start, and we can get you caught up.
