Modern Plus Sampler ➕ Rick Rack Blocks in Fandangle

I finished my Rick Rack Blocks for the Modern Plus Sampler just in time before the next set of instructions will be posted this Thursday, December 6th.  Most of my November was consumed with making two quilts to enter into QuiltCon 2019.  (More about those later.)

I'm using Christa Watson's fabric line, Fandangle, for this version of the Modern Plus Sampler.  Included are two colors of Confetti Crosshatch and Triangle Trinkets in teal.

And a couple of close ups...

You can find a link to the Rick Rack instructions here in this post and see the original Rick Rack Runner quilt here.

The next set of instructions will be posted Thursday, December 6th.  In the mean time, check out progress on Instagram at #ModernPlusSampler and check out Cheryl's Rick Rack area here.


  1. That turquoise fabric really pops! I have been working on a Rick rack baby quilt. The top and backing are done and it is pin basted, ready for quilting. I am deep into Christmas sewing now so there will be a bit of a delay in getting it finished. Take care! Gail

  2. Very pretty, Paige! I'm looking forward to seeing what you entered in QuiltCon. I have no doubt your two entries are fabulous. You seem to work well under pressure! I entered six quilts, hoping against hope that one of them is accepted. I really want my grandson's design ("Owl Always Love You") to be juried-in, but am already imagining not having any quilt accepted. Best wishes to you!

  3. I really like how the teal and turquoise look with the gray background for your rick rack runner blocks, Paige. I look forward to hearing about the quilts you made to submit to QuiltCon!!

  4. I love Fandangle. I wonder if I can find some in Canada. I'm all ready for tomorrow's instructions.
