Hello and happy Friday and welcome to the Sunday Best Quilts Sampler Block 4 post. This week’s block is the Driftwood Drive block from my quilt by the same name in our book. This is a fun block that we know you’ll enjoy making!
Quilt Sampler Block 4: Driftwood Drive
Block 4 is from my Driftwood Drive quilt which is my version of our scrappy category quilt. I actually love scrappy quilts that can be worked on over a long period of time and designed this pattern so that blocks could be made along the way and then combined later into a fun quilt. But of course the pattern is pre-cut friendly, so you can also use your favorite charm pack and jelly roll or left-over pieces from those and other pre-cuts.
Block 4 Details and Tips
This week you’ll make one Driftwood Drive quilt sample block and then finish according to our PDF instructions. Get the free PDF download here or click on the link below. Additionally, the Driftwood Drive block uses partial seam construction which is a technique that sounds a little complicated but is actually simple. And I have a video for you which shows the block construction for the Driftwood Drive block step by step through the first round.

Thanks so much for sewing along with us, and thanks for stopping by today!
Thank you, Sherri,
This is a very fun quilt along and joining in gives me the incentive to stay on track, get projects completed, and I love saying, “ I have to do my homework.” Otherwise, my busy life gets in the way and my quilting goes on the back burner. Together, you and Corey have done a fabulous job with this book and communication regarding the quilt along- precise easy to follow instructions with great pictures. Thank you, thank you, thank you.?

Sherri, This is a beautiful quilt & I have all of my fabric. Did you really use 9900-60 for your background? Your quilt looks so much whiter than this ivory. I just received my 9900-60 today & want to be sure that is what you used. Thank you. Can’t wait to get started.
sherri McConnell says
Yes, this is what I used. If you’d like a whiter background you can use 9900 200;however I did use the 9900-60 on my quilt.
