Norfolk Sampler QAL – Check in #7

Hello Friends, today is our 7th check-in for Norfolk Sampler Quilt Along! Can you believe we are on our 7th month? I am loving all the sightings on Instagram. Just do a search on #norfolksampler2022, and see what quilters have done! And on that note, if you post on Instagram, ALWAYS add hashtag #norfolksampler2022 and #wendysheppard so that we can all oooh and aaah over your blocks!


Before going any further, let me quickly go through the QAL essentials in case you just heard about it. You may read previous blog posts HERE.

  1. NO sign-up necessary. Join in anytime. This QAL runs the entire year of 2022.
  2. Pattern is released in 4 installments in Quilters World magazine. Purchase the first pattern (spring 2022) installment HERE. Purchase the second pattern (summer 2022) installment HERE. Purchase the third pattern (autumn 2022) installment HERE.
  3. USE hashtag #norfolksampler2022 when posting your quilt progress picture on social media.
  4. The fabrics in the original sample quilt are available HERE. The pattern in spring 2022 issue will tell you exactly which fabrics to purchase, and how much to purchase. However, it would seem like the blue skus are sold out. So, your best bet might be to purchase the FQ bundle, and mix and match the fabrics that way for a scrappier final look.
  5. I have curated a companion thread box called INDIGO to go with this project. You may purchase the threads HERE. Read about the collection HERE.

So for today’s check-in, we are supposed to make the leaf blocks.

Here are my Block 7 leaf blocks — I am using a One Fine Day FQ Bundle (by Moda) to make my quiltalong quilt. The leaf blocks were super quick to make — because this is a low demand, and low stress quilt-along!

You may purchase the FQ bundle HERE.

Remember, instructions for blocks 7 & 8 are found in the Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue. If you are not a subscriber, you may purchase the issue HERE. The issue should have the following cover.

Also, if you happened to have made a few more blocks – you can easily turn the blocks into a tablerunner. Complete instructions are also included in the Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue.

And that’s it for #NorfolkSampler2022 — we will be looking at the end of the quilt-along before we know it! Thank you for sewing along, and I hope you have a lovely day! See you again on August 31 for block 8!

  1. I see you used B&C One fine day fabric if cost of a bigger FQ bundle is a issue for anyone, I know times are tough right now for everyone. We have a 10 FQ bundle available in our store
    I completely understand when it comes to saving any money you can. Love your Blog Wendy
    By the way when does the Pumpkin SAL start Aug. 31st?
