Easy Sampler Quilt Pattern with Blocks On Point

Layout and Quilt Block Patterns for the Easy Sampler Quilt Pattern

By

My on point sampler quilt pattern is suitable for quilters of any skill level, and sewing the blocks will help new quilters practice their patchwork skills. Have fun making the sampler quilt, and be sure to send me a photo of your quilt when it is finished.

All of the sampler quilt blocks finish at 12-inches square.

1. Sampler Quilt Layout Pattern

The sampler quilt layout pattern illustrates the framework that surrounds the quilt blocks. The layout page offers insights into fabric yardages and selections and will help you choose a theme for your own sampler quilt.

2. Flying in Circles Quilt Block Pattern

Flying in Circles is a quilt block pattern assembled with three simple units: flying geese, half-square triangle units, and one plain square of fabric. Quick piecing techniques help the block go together quickly and accurately.

3. Baskets on Point Quilt Block Pattern

Use my easy sandwich method to make the half-square triangles required for this pretty basket quilt block. Be sure to read the instructions before you cut fabrics, because you might decide to make your squares oversize and then trim units back after assembly -- that ensures they'll be perfect, every time.

4. Rocky Mountain Puzzle Quilt Block Pattern

The third block in the 2007 Anniversary Sampler Quilt is a variation of the traditional Rocky Mountain Puzzle quilt block. Its patchwork center square is surrounded by ten half-square triangle units and plain squares in two corners.

5. Scrappy Framed Star Block

The Scrappy Framed Star quilt block features a pinwheel at its center, and the pinwheel is surrounded by darker star tips made from "flying geese-like" units. A scrappy patchwork frame surrounds the block's outer perimeter. This block is one of my favorites from the Sampler Quilt series.

6. Chariot Wheel Quilt Block Pattern

The fifth block for the sampler quilt is a variation of the traditional Chariot Wheel. It's partially strip pieced to speed things along, and is made with squares and bars -- you won't find even one stretchy selvage edge in the entire block.

Take a look at my Chariot Wheel quilt pattern for an entire quilt made from this design, although the block is a bit more intricate.

7. Switching Crowns Quilt Block Pattern

But Switching Crowns has the traditional Queen Charlotte's Crown in its ancestry. I wasn't happy with the appearance of the traditional block, so I added patchwork units and flipped them around. Switching Crowns is the result.

8. Odds and Ends Quilt Block Pattern

Quilt Block Pattern
Traditional Quilt Block
Odds and Ends is designed it with a combination of green and pink floral fabrics. Play around with fabrics if you like, placing the lighter long bars on the outer perimeter of the quilt instead, or switching the value placement of the four-patch units that rest in the corners. Assemble all of the units, and then experiment a bit before you sew everything together.

9. Cut Glass Dish Quilt Block Pattern

Cut Glass Dish is made from half-square triangle units and four-patch units. The block has quite a few patchwork pieces, but is not difficult to make. Cut on the straight grain to avoid stretch and sew with an accurate quarter inch seam allowance. Press carefully to avoid skewing the final layout.

10. Girl's Choice Quilt Block Pattern

The Girl's Choice quilt block is a little more involved than some of the other sampler quilt blocks. Beginning quilters -- sew and press with care and the block will be a breeze to sew.
