Hello and happy Friday! We are just four weeks away from beginning the Sunday Best Quilts Sampler Quilt Along. So today is the day we are sharing all of the details you’ll need to prepare to join us in this fun sew along! Find out start dates, fabric requirements, and more!
The Sunday Best Quilts Sampler Sew Along
The Sunday Best Quilts Sampler sew along will be a weekly sew along beginning in the last week of September (September 27th) and finishing on December 20th. First, you’ll need a copy of our Sunday Best Quilts book in order to sew along. You can find signed copies here, and it is also available on Amazon here.
Then, we will release a free PDF weekly for each block in the quilt so you’ll know how to proceed to make the block for the sampler version. It’s going to be so much fun! You don’t need to sign up anywhere to participate; however, we will have opportunities for you to share your finished blocks and quilts later this fall. If you are sewing along we would love for you to use the hashtag #SundayBestQuiltsSampler when you post.
Sunday Best Quilts Sampler Fabric Requirements
Here are the fabric requirements for the sampler quilt so you can gather your supplies and be ready to begin sewing!
- 1 Fat Quarter Bundle for blocks
- 1 ¼ yard contrast for border squares and sashing
- 4 ¼ yards background fabric
- ¾ yard binding
- Optional: 1 ¼ yard outer border fabric (I added a cream outer border to my quilt while Corey made her quilt without the outer border).
- Backing: 5 ⅓ yards without optional outer border (this quilt finishes at approximately 67″ x 88″).
- Backing: 6 ⅔ yards with optional outer border (this quilt finishes at 73″ x 94″).
A Few More Things…
Some quilt shops have decided to use our Sampler quilt as a block of the week or block of the month program. Be sure to stop by your favorite local quilt shop if you are interested in participating through your shop. Some shops may have kits and fabrics available for quilts.

I am enjoying sewing The Lyle. I have also order your book Sunday Best Quilts. Your quilts are beautiful. Kay
I need to start another project like I need a hole in my head, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be sewing along. I already have the book and will start pulling fabrics this weekend because I just can’t help myself. 😀
Love your sampler quilt!

I am going to do the Sunday Sampler but would like to know what blue or turquoise you used in sashings? Was it a Moda Bella?
sherri McConnell says
It’s actually a small floral from Harper’s Garden which will be available next month in shops!
I have a pile of big Cotton+Steel scraps that would be perfect for this project. I don’t need another project, but I can tell myself that I am using my stash for a good cause,
So looking forward to this
When you list a fat quarter bundle how many fats is that please?
sherri McConnell says
You’ll need a minimum of 28 fat quarters! Thank you!
What is the cream fabric used in the quilt? I assume it’s Moda. I have the fat quarter bundle on pre-order and can’t wait to get started on this beautiful sampler quilt! Thank you, Sherri. I love your work ?

HI I noticed in the background there are small quilt blocks on the wall above the couch photo and one above the bed. Are these painted on wood or out of fabric squares and framed–did you make? Thank you.
