2015 Baby Sampler Block of the Month

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.

        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.
