Sampler quilt tutorial

This was a quilt made without planning or direction. I used fabrics from my stash as needed.

The only criteria was for predominately blue tone fabric in combination with white on white fabric.

The instructions to make the blocks are from crazy mom’s quilt-a-long.

Flying geese border
I used the No Waste Flying Geese method to make the border. As explained in Blocks & Swaps & Patterns & Tips.

Piano Keys sides border
The border is 8inches wide. The strips that make the border are 2.5 inches when finished.

The back is made of 8inch blue tone squares and 8 inch wide strips of plain white fabric.

  1. Beautiful sampler… I’m nearly finished making one too and its really inspirational to see how much work you put into the back of yours too.


  2. Manuela, I don´t have the quilt with me but from memory the flying geese are 5 inches wide without the seam allowance and the sashing is 3 inches finished, so each strip is 1 inch finished.
