We're celebrating National Quilting Month with a Sampler Quilt created using blocks by many of our fabric designers. Throughout the month, we'll share a block made by each of the designers listed below and featuring their newest fabric line, along with directions to sew that block. Come sew with us!

Make the Block
1. Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the B squares. Place a marked B square over an A square, right sides together, and sew a ¼" seam on either side of the drawn line. Cut on the drawn line and press the seams toward the A triangle. Trim the A/B units to measure 2" square. Repeat with the remaining A and B squares for a total of (8) A/B units.

2. Sew 2 A/B units and 2 C pieces into a row, and then sew onto the top edge of a D piece; press seams toward D. Repeat for a total of (4) gift units.

3. Sew a gift unit to the left and right edges of an F strip; repeat. Sew an F strip to the left and right edges of an E square. Sew the units together to make the Hearty Gift block; square the block to measure 12 1/2" square.
