We’re so excited to announce the 2015 Fairfield Block of the month. the 2015 Baby Sampler Block of the Month. The quilt has 12 blocks that come together to make a fun quilt for any baby or young child. This quilt is great for a beginning quilter – over the course of the first 9 months, you’ll learn a different quilting or sewing technique – raw-edged applique, dresden plate, zipper, buttonhole, half-square triangles, ruffles, curves, paper piecing, and prairie points. The last three months we’ll talk about putting the quilt together, quilting, and binding.
Several of the blocks have more than one option so that you can customize the quilt. You can choose to applique a butterfly or a car, make a heart or a ship from half-square triangles, and add buttons to the centers of flowers, mud puddles, or clouds.
Each month, we’ll also share a project you can make using that month’s block. This way, if you want to learn the technique of the month to make a project, without committing to the entire quilt. If you plan on making the entire quilt as well as the extra projects, you’ll need more fabric than is listed below.

I would love to do this. Can you tell me how ?
The quilt is being made month by month so you can follow along. https://www.fairfieldworld.com/2015/01/2015-baby-sampler-block-month/
This link goes to the fabric requirements but not to the blocks. With a lot of searching I found blocks 1-3 and 5-9. Block four is offered but there are no directions and no templates. It’s sad to say but your old site was much easier to find things in and let us print pdf’s to take to our sewing rooms each month and make our blocks.
Thank you for your comments. We listen to each one of them. The person in charge of that project has gone in and cleaned things up. You should be able to find everything you need. If you do not please contact me directly and I will email you what ever it is you need. [email protected]
I am going to be a great grandmother for the first time and I would love to make this for the baby. How do I get the pattern?
Would like to have the patterns for the knit Autism hat,theSailboat quilt square and the Dresden plate pattern please.
You can find the instructions along with many others in our Project Gallery. https://www.fairfieldworld.com/project/
