modern sampler quilt along: block I link-up

Modern Sampler Quilt Along with Salty Oat

The Modern Sampler Quilt Along is an informal and virtual quilt along where we make a block from Yoshiko Jinzenji's Modern Sampler Quilt pattern each month. You can follow the hashtag #modernsamplerquiltalong on Instagram to get a peek at everyone's blocks, fabrics, and progress, as we work our way through the pattern together. On the last Tuesday of each month, we gather here to share the blocks we've made; this month we worked on Block I from the pattern.

I can't believe how close we're getting to finishing this quilt. There are only three more blocks to go after this month! To piece this month's block, I stuck with traditional paper piecing, tracing the template onto strips of paper, to which I then stitched the fabric.
