State Fair Sampler - 2020 Block of the Month

State Fair Sampler - 2020 Block of the Month


The State Fair Sampler was inspired by a mosaic of quilt blocks on the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Going to the fair is one of my family’s favorite summer activities and I just had to make a quilt with some of the quilt blocks! Now the pattern is available to you too! I hope you’ll sew along in this 2020 Block of the Month.

Here are all the details:

There are 36 blocks in 6 different sizes. Three PDF block patterns will be delivered to you via email on the first of each month throughout 2020.

There are:
(1) 36” block
(1) 32” block
(5) 24” blocks
(3) 16” blocks
(15) 12” blocks
(11) 8” blocks

Blocks are made with both traditional and foundation paper pieced units.

Multiple Layout Options

Three different quilt layouts are also included, queen, throw, and crib. The sizes are:

- Queen: 96” x 92”
- Throw: 48” x 60”
- Crib: 32” x 36”


You will need 4 1/2 yards of background fabric and 12-14 yards of various prints and solids to make the queen sized option. (This could be a great stash/scrap buster!)
