modern sampler quilt along: block J 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. All are welcome to join the quilt along at any point! On the last Tuesday of each month, we gather here to share the blocks we've made; this month we worked on Block J from the pattern.

Good morning, all! I can't believe how close we're getting to the end of the quilt along! Just two more blocks after this month, and then we can start putting our tops together (which I can't wait to do!).

I found this month's block to be pretty straightforward. I sewed two sets of strips together, cut them into four pieces each, and then sewed them back together in the arrangement suggested by the pattern. I think the resulting block is quite pretty!

    I haven’t even started yet, except to buy the pattern and check out the beautiful translations that others are doing. I have to say that your block J is my favorite so far of all the blocks. Esp. like the opposing black shapes in your composition. I too like your namesake fabric! Thanks for the inspiration…..
