Hello and happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start! Today I’m sharing my modern barn blocks using the Fat Quarter Shop Barn Block pattern series. (I just received the pattern for the fourth block in this series and stitched it up immediately)! I’m also sharing the latest Sew Sampler Box, and have a fun giveaway to share with three of my readers!
I think this is my favorite block in the series so far. These blocks have a fun, modern style to them, and yet use traditional quilt designs for the “barn block” portion. I decided to be a little more bold with my color choices for this block, and I’m really happy with how it turned out!
The fabrics I’m sewing with are all from our Clover Hollow fabric collection. (It will be in shops in just a few short weeks)! I can hardly wait! This month I changed up the assembly instructions just a little bit so I could use my favorite method for making quarter-square triangle units. You can see my favorite method for making these blocks here. If you want to use this method for your barn block QST units, just add ¼″ to the measurements of each square you cut out for that part of the quilt. Making these pieces a bit over-sized and being able to trim them to the perfect size makes a great impact on the accuracy of the block.
I love how the first four modern barn blocks look together! And I love the pop of red that I added to this month’s block. Next month I’m thinking I might make a navy roof!
The only bad thing about making the new block right away is that there is a month to wait before the next pattern arrives! While these Modern Barn Blocks patterns arrive in the monthly Sew Sampler Box from Fat Quarter Shop, you can also purchase the Barn Block patterns separately if you’re not a Sew Sampler Subscriber (subscribe here). I love that Fat Quarter Shop is making the patterns available even if you don’t receive the box! Find the Modern Barn Blocks patterns in paper and PDF versions here.
While I must admit that the Barn Block is the first thing I look at when I open my box, the other goodies are always so much fun too! This month’s box theme is “Adventure Awaits.” Such a fun theme for this time of year!
Here’s what you’ll find in the July Sew Sampler Box:
- Petite Vintage Adventure Rolie Polie fabric bundle (20 strips 2 ½″ x width of Fabric). This is a cute collection featuring vintage campers and bicycles along with stripes and florals.
- EZ Dresden Quilting Ruler Set (Use this for making the Daisy Dresden Quilt pattern, also included)
- Pellon 15″ x 108″ Sew-in Interfacing (yes, 108″!)
- Schmetz Chrome Machine Needles Size 80/12 (I’m so excited to try these)!
- Riley Green Large Vintage Trim (the cutest ric rac on an adorable wooden spool). It might be too cute to use, and it comes in a fun variety of colors!
- Barn Block Quilt Recipe #4
And a Giveaway!
Finally…Fat Quarter Shop is giving away one Jolly Bar of our Creekside collection to three of my readers! Creekside has a great mix of large and small florals. It is a fun collection and will blend beautifully with our other and upcoming fabric collections! If you don’t know what a Jolly Bar is, a Jolly Bar is basically half of a Layer Cake, or two Charm Packs put together. It measures 5″ x 10″ and is perfect for so many projects! Fat Quarter Shop has published several individual Jolly Bar quilt patterns and a Jolly Bar quilt pattern book (find their patterns here). They’ve also shared some fun sew-alongs using this versatile pre-cut!

I am really trying to use up some of my stash, but the new fabrics call to me!!

I’m also getting caught up on a star throw I’m making for the chilly evenings on the lake and I started your mystery block of the month. I have my eye on the Barn Quilt Patterns that look so inviting. Next is something with Christmas fabric and a quilt for my family who we will be visiting in CA soon.

One of my favorite current projects is your BOM quilt blocks. I eagerly anticipate that block every month. I’m working on two quilts for grandchildren and will then start a baby quilt. Thanks for the giveaway!
I”m finishing the binding on a table runner that was supposed to be done for the 4th of July. Ah, well. It will be done for next year. I am also working on a charity quilt that has appliqued curved pieces on it – I’m looking for a modern vibe for a teenage boy. Hopefully the fabrics and pattern will appeal to a young guy.
I am currently making packing cubes using Annie’s patterns and it is so much fun. I have never sewn with mesh before and it adds such a nice touch and it serves a purpose. Next, I will be making makeup zipper bags.
Deborah Omori says
Love the block and all of the tips you share. I’m currently working on a Heritage block of the month making a king sized quilt in grunge fabrics.

Diann Smith says
I just finished the binding on the Dear Jane quilt…a 20 year journey of working and leaving. I thought I didn’t have enough skills to finish it but with the help of a quilt blogger who had made the quilt…I followed her directions and crossed the finish line. Now I am working on a Tula Pink quilt of blocks from her book City Sampler hoping to develop some modern machine quilting moves in the solid places between the blocks…scared but moving ahead.

I’m not sewing anything right now because I’m packing to move out of state. Alas. I keep looking at my pristine sewing station so wanting to sew. I am hoping I will get all the packing done early and have a little time to sew. Oh, hope is eternal!
I love the colors you used in your barn blocks! I ordered the barn kit from Fat Quarter Shop and just packed it up. Alas, again. After seeing your adorable barn blocks, I think I will make the black, grey and white barn blocks and a more cheerful set. You always inspire me!
After this move, I will have a real craft room. I am claiming a bedroom on the main floor of our new home for my craft room, rather than needing to go down to the basement. I’m getting old and may not always have good knees and hips. Plus, I think I will have more sewing time being close to the kitchen. To a new life, and to being close to six grandchildren!

You are always such an inspiration! I love your posts. I just finished a Winnie the Pooh baby quilt for a new little girl named Evie. She was born 3 weeks early so it is good I finished early, too. 🙂 Next up is suppose to be a double wedding ring quilt for my daughter who is getting married next summer but I am scared to death I will not be able to do it well. I think I will try a table runner in that pattern first to see how I do. Thank you for the giveaway!

I’m finishing up on Pat Sloan’s quilt a long, In the Summer Time and I’m looking forward to making the barn blocks! I don’t get the quilt box, but I do buy the patterns and I’m very thankful the fat quarter shop offers them separately.
I am working on block three of the barn blocks. Those tiny hst’s are challenging me! Thanks for the tips on the hourglass units for my next block!

Right now working on 2 sew together bags for my nieces, for their makeup. Next I’m going to do some “Me” sewing. I need a new wallet to carry with me everyday. I’m taking care of my aging mom so I need quick finish projects that I don’t have to think as much with due to stop and starting so frequently. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway

I love all your collections. I am making the BOM in 2 versions and want to start the maple leaf for fall but may do something else in between!
I’m working on both Moda Bockheads 2 and also doing the Summer “Camp Oda May” on the Moda Bake shop blog. Soon I need to begin stitchin some blocks for what will be my son’s wedding quilt. She asked if I would make blocks for signatures in place of a guest book. I’m excited that I’m getting a daughter-in-law who wants me to make quilt(s) for her and includes that into her wedding day. I really must get BUSY!!!
Just finished a quilt for a friend using the layer cake recipe to make the meringue pattern, it turned out great! Now the next thing is to finish up a t-shirt quilt with my granddaughter. Thanks for the give-a-way!

I am working on a baby quilt for my daughter’s baby.
I am currently taking apart a quilt that I just completed. I chained stitched it together. Then when I removed it from my machine I discovered something was off so the second half of quilt does not continue on & match the first half. I’m really not sure what I did but it is a mess. My next project will be to sew it back together hopefully in the correct order.

Hi, Right now I am working on the moda summer camp quilt. Also I am working on the mini version of your Mahalo quilt for a table topper. It has been hot so staying inside and quilting is my idea of a perfect day.?
