Simplicity – The Quilt

NM Patterns - Simplicity blog button 2015-05-18

Welcome to Simplicity, the modern sampler quilt-along! As posted two weeks ago, there will be a weekly block posted twelve weeks in a row, and in the last week of August you pick the size of sashing you wish to use as well as sew all the blocks together. So what does this quilt look like?

Let your imagination flow freely, pick solids only, or solids combined with patterned fabrics, or patterned ones only. Switch out colours if there are some you rather not use. Make Simplicity a monochromatic quilt. Simply put, make this quilt yours!

If you don’t have time to make all twelve blocks, but some of them strike your fancy, I will post size suggestions for these quilts the 13th week, the last one of August. I’d love to see also smaller quilts made!

If you want to use the uppermost picture for a blog button, feel free so to do so! You can link to the Simplicity quilt-along page here on the blog, where I will create a gallery of all blocks for easy access.

There is a Flickr group where you can post both your progress photos and photos of your finished quilt, so I hope you join there, too. Please use the hashtag #simplicityquilt so others can find you in social media, and use #nmpatterns as well, if you like. I look forward to quilting Simplicity with you this summer!
