Moving Forward - Designer Shop Hop

I have a fun designer shop hop to share with you today! Ten designers are each sharing a free 12" block this week, plus a layout that shows how all 10 blocks could be used together to create a fabulous sampler quilt 😊 That's 10 blocks and 10 possible layouts!
The theme for the shop hop is "Moving Forward, separate, but working together" and it was inspired by life in quarantine. The hop starts today and all of the blocks are free only through the 18th, so be sure to visit everyone to get their blocks before the price goes up.

As you can see in the schedule, I'll be back on Thursday (my birthday!) to share my block and layout. In the meantime, here's a little peek at the fabrics I'm using.

If you looked at all those pieces and thought it looks like an awful lot for one 12" block, you'd be right! I love the scrappy potential of my block so much that I decided to make a whole quilt's worth. They won't all be done for Thursday, though. So far I have two finished and the components made for another 4, I just need to assemble those.

Off you go, now, to hop around and collect your shop hop blocks! I'll see you back here on Thursday 😊


  1. Looking forward to seeing your block. I hope you have something fun planned for your birthday.

  2. Got the patterns downloaded, like both of them. Happy stitching!

  3. Cannot go wrong with this colour scheme IMHO. Will be watching on Thursday! Great idea too btw!

  4. I really like those fabrics Leanne, look forward to seeing your block.

  5. Sounds like a great way for a newer quiltmaker to learn how to put together a variety of blocks. I hope your blocks come together as you imagine.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. I love hearing from you.
