Hello, friends! Today I’m sharing a Sampler Spree Quilt Block March 2022 Update. Over the weekend I was able to do some fun sewing and finish up sixteen more blocks for my Sampler Spree quilt. This means I actually only have three more blocks to make, and then I can start setting the blocks together for my quilt top. I used fabrics from our Emma collection for all of these blocks (other than one small piece from Seashore Drive which just had to be used–details below). Keep reading for details on all of these beautiful blocks.
Sampler Spree Quilt Blocks March 2022 Update
Sampler Spree Quilt Links
I’ve been working on this quilt since early last summer, and it’s really exciting to see that I’m almost ready to start assembling my quilt top. The quilt uses 100 blocks, and there are additional block patterns included. I’ve chosen my remaining blocks to make and should get them sewn in the next day or so. Then I’ll need to choose my sashing and will start sewing them together in groups of four as shown in the book. If you are interested in sewing this quilt, the following links will be of great help:
- First, if you don’t have it already, be sure to grab a copy of Susan Ache’s Sampler Spree book for all of the block patterns. You can see Susan’s gorgeous blocks on her Instagram Account @yardgrl60.
- Next, find the Moda Cutting Table posts for this sew along here.

Blocks 81 – 85
- Susan’s Puzzle, Block 81 – This has to be one of my favorite blocks in the book. I absolutely love how it turned out. I did use the Bloc Loc Flying Geese Square Up Ruler for the flying geese units in this block. And I also sized up the squares for the hst units by ⅛″ to make them easier to trim down to the correct size.
- Scotch, Block 82 – This was a fast and fun simple block to make! I did use strip piecing for the tiny four-patch unit which is the only thing I did differently from the block instructions.
- Basket, Block 83 – Once again I used the Bloc Loc Flying Geese Square Up Ruler for the flying geese units.
- Coxey’s Camp, Block 84 – I used strip piecing for the side units and also used my Mini Simple Folded Corners Ruler for the center unit.
- Toy Boat, Block 85 – Another of my favorite blocks! I used the Mini Simple Folded Corners Ruler for the boat base section. I also added ⅛″ to the squares for the hst units to make them just a touch larger for accurate trimming. And this is the block where I added in a touch of Seashore Drive fabric. I thought the ocean base should definitely come from that collection!
Blocks 86 – 90
- Double V, Block 86 – I did size up the squares for the half-square triangles by ⅛″ and then trimmed down to the perfect size for this block.
- Framed Nine Patch, Block 87 – I used strip piecing for the center 9-patch unit on this one.
- Forest Paths, Block 88 – Once again I added ⅛″ to the size of the squares for the half-square triangle units. This one was another fun one to make. I feel like it would be super cute with four different colors for the pinwheel unit, too.
- Equinox, Block 89 – Strip piecing again for the win here! I loved using the Emma grey large floral for this one!
- Diamond Panes, Block 90 – I sized up the squares for the half-square triangles again by just ⅛″ to make sure I could trim them perfectly.
Blocks 91 – 96
- Grandma Knows Best, Block 91 – For this block I followed the instructions precisely. I love how this one turned out.
- Geese and Goslings, Block 92 – Once again I sized up the squares for the large half-square triangles. I used triangle paper for accuracy in making the tiny hst’s.
- Hour Glass, Block 93 – I used strip piecing for the tiny four patch and sized up the hst squares by ⅛″.
- Hayes Corner, Block 94 – No surprises here–I used strip piecing for the small four-patch units and sized up the squares for the half-square triangles.
- Almost Churn Dash, Block 95 – I used strip piecing for the narrow rectangles in this block and also used triangle paper for the small half-square triangle units.
- Broken Windows, Block 96 – Once again I used triangle paper for accuracy with these very small half-square triangle units. I also sized up the squares and rectangles for the flying geese sections so I could use the Bloc Loc Flying Geese Square Up Ruler for those units.
Thanks so much for stopping by for my Sampler Spree Quilt Blocks March 2022 update. When I stop in and share these blocks again, I’ll have my final blocks sewn and will also share my sashing fabric choices along with some completed four-block units.
