Goodness Grows - Sew Sampler BOM Finish!!!!

So if you have been following along with my Sew Sampler Box posts, you know that I have been working on Goodness Grows blocks.  These are a fun BOM that is an annual tradition with the Sew Sampler Box!!!     The first year of Sew Sampler was some fun HST blocks, that I finished up back here, and the second year was Basket Blocks, that I finished up here and the third year was Barn Blocks that I finished here.        Last month marked the 12th block for this years Goodness Grows blocks and I am thrilled to share my finished Goodness Grows Sew Sampler BOM Quilt!!!

 I have had so much fun making these Goodness Grows blocks!!!   I loved that each block was different and some even added in a little applique.   It really was great to just try something new with each blocks!!    Some months were super fast and easy, and other months were a little more intricate, adding lots of piecing variety to the mix.      And I love the finished block layout and adorable ribbon border!!!   What a super cute way to finish the quilt!!  

I used Corey Yoder's Sugarcreek fabric for my quilt.   I love the happy spring feel it has and it fits these Goodness Grows blocks just perfectly.   In fact, when I started the first block, my good friends at Fat Quarter Shop let me know they were making a Sugarcreek Goodness Grows quilt kit,  and my quilt became the sample for it.   So fun :)   And there are still a few Kit's left if you want to make a Goodness Grows quilt just like mine. 

When it came time to quilt it, I decided on an all over Curly Q design.   I love quilting sampler quilts with this design, it is a great way to add a lot of texture without taking away from each of the blocks.  And my favorite thread, 402 So Fine Pearl,  blended perfectly with all that white, and pretty much disappears on the prints.  Just perfect ;)  

And I love the green binding to offset the red ribbon border!!!!  It really is just the perfect touch at the end.   And isn't that backing fabric just gorgeous!!!  I just love Corey's fabrics, she is such an amazing designer ;)  And yes, you can even see my custom label.  I tell you what, that was one of the best things I ever bought.  I never labeled my quilts before, now I just sew in my tag while sewing the binding.  So easy and so cute!!! 

And that is my Goodness Grows quilt from the Sew Sampler BOM and I just love, love, love it!!!!  It finishes at 66" x 84" so it will make a great snuggle up quilt.  It most likely will be given away for a wedding and I think it would make just the cutest wedding present!!   Won't that just be fun ;)  

And now, I am anxiously awaiting to see what the 2020 BOM pattern will be for the Sew Sampler Box!!!  I just want to get going on Year 5, so exciting!!!   If you want to join in with me sewing, be sure and sign up for the Sew Sampler Box in the next few days as the first box of the BOM ships out around the 20th ;)  Ohhh, I just can't wait to see what we will be sewing this year!!!!
Pin It!


  1. Congrats on a cheerful quilt finish, Melissa! Goodness knows we can all use some of that right now.

  2. Pretty! I just started getting Sew Sampler boxes in August. Is there any way to get the prior block patterns so I'd have all of them?

    1. Absolutely, you can click on any of the Goodness Grows Pattern links in the post above to be taken to the Patterns for purchase :)

  3. So lovely! I finished all of my blocks, but have not put the quilt top together yet. I'm looking forward to doing that when I have some extra time. I love how they were different-sized blocks and I even didn't mind the applique. So unique.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
