KQMG Sampler Along

Good morning everyone!  Hope the Easter Bunny brought you some candy.  He definitely stopped at my house.  Just wanted to post info about our Sampler Along!  Remember to post pics and use #KMQGsampleralong on instagram and flickr!  After talking about the trends within the MQG at our last meeting, we thought we would start a quilt-a-long to show off our favorite modern fabrics in a traditional type pattern.

All you have to do is decide on a quilt with blocks like these listed below:
 (but we didn't want the pattern to be restrictive so find one you love! And join in!)

Farmer's Wife
Gypsy Wife, Jen Kingwell
Green Tea and Sweet Beans, Jen Kingwell
Marcelle Medallion, Alexia Abregg
Tula Pink City Sampler
Midnight at the Oasis
Amish with a Twist 2, kit at Mammaw's Thimble
Create your own design with your favorite quilt blocks!

Complete a couple blocks (or rows) each month and bring to our meetings to show your progress, offer tips and  That's it!  Hopefully, by December we will have some gorgeous quilt tops to show off!

Can't wait to see what everyone has started on!
