{ Something New Sampler }

Find all the posts for the Something New Sampler right here!

Each week, one or two bloggers will present a block tutorial with an uncommonly used technique. There will be a total of 9 blocks presented. And, just to mix it up, we're going with a funky modern block size - 7" x 14"! We'll have plenty of suggestions on how to use this block shape along the way. There's no need for our modern blocks to always be square :)

  1. Hi Amy, I really want to join in this QAL (I know, I'm late!), I've seen one ladies version in progress where she's using solids and want to do something similar - I can't find any fabric requirements anywhere. Am I being thick, have you published them or is it something you didn't work out as I know this is intended to be made from scraps?

    thanks for your help!

  2. If you click on the above links - one at a time starting with the Introduction - there is information on there. Because they are small blocks you don't really need a lot of fabric. You do need enough background to cover the 7 blocks. The other links that follow are all the individual blocks to work on. Cheers. I am really enjoying doing this project - it is definitely something new to try and gets you out of your comfort zone.
