Adelicia Sampler BOM for 2022

Antique Red and Green sampler quilts have always held a fascination for me. I decided it was time to make my own and what a journey it has been....

I would love to share with you the Adelicia Sampler as a Twelve part block of the month. Along the way I will be posting each month, all that I learnt while making the blocks. (I love how much this quilt has taught me) There are many of my favourite blocks included in the sampler, some you will recognize from my past quilt patterns. I will also post information of selecting the fabrics I have used, this is a great quilt to have you delving into your stash and finding all those reds you have tucked away.

I wonder what the sampler would like in a scrappy version, using many different colours, I am sure it would look wonderful. So if you are not a fan of the colours I have used your can always delve into your stash and choose your own. It would be so much fun to see what everyone comes up with. 

We can share our progress on Instagram #adeliciasamplerquilt @sharonkeightleyquilts and the Sharon Keightley quilts Facebook group.

I will be keeping in touch with you all via my newsletter, you can sign up on my website. I will also be posting here on the blog and sending lots of pictures your way if you follow me on Instagram @sharonkeightleyquilts and Facebook. 

The blocks will be available each month on my website for a small fee. So keep watching for the update on fabric requirements etc in January 2022. The starting date for the Adelicia Sampler Quilt BOM will be in January, more information coming soon. But until then here are some of pictures of my blocks for the first Part of the Block of the month.

 Here is what the full quilt looks like, this is only a mock up of the design. You can also choose a different colour scheme if you wish. Keep a look out as I will be showing my finished quilt top in the New Year.

Here is Part One

I have used a large mix of fabrics, many different background fabrics, along with a mixture of florals and small prints, dots and stripes. I have mixed the reds in the same manner, with a few larger florals for interest. I will explain more about how I choose my fabrics in the January post.

These are all the blocks for part one, I can't wait to see what colours your blocks will be.

The finished quilt measures 72 inches x 72 inches.

I am going now so I can get back to writing all the patterns for the sampler quilt so I can share them with you.

Happy Stitching
