Introducing the 2018 Sew Sampler Barn Block Quilt Along!

We are so excited to introduce our Series 3 Sew Sampler Quilt Along featuring stunning 12” finished Barn Blocks in an elegant, monochromatic color scheme! The block patterns will be included in Sew Sampler Boxes from April 2018 – March 2019. If you are not a Sew Sampler member but would like to participate, you can purchase the Barn Block Recipe patterns each month on our website separately.

We were inspired to create a classic, monochromatic quilt this year. What is more elegant than black and white? We took it a step further and made it easy for you to make a quilt just like ours by providing you with an exclusive Barn Block Quilt Kit and Barn Block Thread Set so you can sew along with us. Also, be sure to pick up 3.625 yards of backing fabric. We suggest this 108″ Wide Buffalo Check but have a limited amount in stock so order soon.

If you want to change it up a bit, below is what you will need.


We hope you will join us as we travel the countryside and make twelve unique and inspiring Barn Blocks!


  1. Thank you so much for the fabric requirements. I think instead of the monochromatic black/grey, I am going to go with monochromatic reds, to match my own red barn! Thank you again for sharing.

  2. We lost our 100 yr plus barn to 125 mile direct winds last June. This will be a way of commemorating that special building

  3. Thank you so much for this information. Gratefully appreciated. I received my box today and I’m getting the creative juices going.

  4. I was a little ho-hum on the monochromatic color scheme, until I looked up some of the fabric numbers you have listed. The 30150 numbers are Moda Grunge fabrics! When I saw that, I ordered a kit right away. I’m thinking of adding few tiny touches of light pastels in each patchwork block just to give it a little color.

  5. The video tutorial is very helpful. Will there be videos for the remaining blocks?
