HST Sampler Quilt | Block #1: Formal Garden


**Argghh! Right at the last minute I’ve just realised I’ve been quoting the size of the block wrong throughout the whole video!! The size of the blocks will be 12.5″ square NOT 12&1/4″! The set square ruler I use is 12.5″ NOT 12″! Oh my, where was my brain today! :/

Hello and happy Wednesday to you all!

Today brings to you the first block in my HST Sampler Quilt Along series, the Formal Garden Block!

Everything you’ll need to know in regards to the measurement and cutting information as well as the fabrics* I’ve use to piece this block together are in the pattern sheet linked at the beginning of this post! If you would like to use the same 12.5″ set square as me, you can find it here: June Tailor Get-Squared 12.5″ Ruler.

I know I’ve said this a thousand times now but don’t forget to share your finished blocks with me! I love, love, love seeing them!

Happy Sewing, Friends and I’ll see you on Friday with block #2!


*A big thanks to Australian wholesale supplier and fabric distributer Dayview Textiles for supplying me with such beautiful fabrics! If you want to see all of the fabrics I’ll be using in this Quilt Along, check out this post where I share them all with you!

  1. I am super excited to make this block tonight!!! Just wondering – would it be okay for me to just cut what I need off of my fabric bits as I go along? Surely it won’t mess anything up if I do that.. right?! I just don’t want to be cutting all willy-nilly and run out of fabric when I’m almost done! EEK! 😉

    1. Yay! That’s great! 😀
      Yes, you’ll have plenty to spare if you cut off what you need as you go. None of the cutting measurements will be bigger than 5″, so you’ll be fine!
