The Cricut Maker Block of the Week is a small sampler quilt that I designed to be cut on the Cricut Maker. It has 9 quilt blocks, along with sashing and borders. We’ll also be quilting and binding this small quilt over the course of 14+ videos. On this page, you’ll find all the videos, in order, as well as all the links you need.

This week, the step-by-step instructions for the Mother’s Dream block shows you slightly different construction than the video below. The difference is oh-so-slight in the way the corners are added, and will make no difference in the final look of the block, but is worth a look! This week you’ll need the Mother’s Dream Cut File for Cricut Design Space.
Sashing. Week 10:
You won’t need a cut file to add on the sashing this week. The sashings were cut in Intro: Week 1. You can watch the video below, or follow the step by step instructions for adding sashing to the quilt top.

You can watch the video below, or follow the step by step instructions for adding the borders to the quilt top – which mean that the quilt top is complete!
Quilting. Week 12:
In week 12 we get to quilt our quilt! This week I’ve made two different videos to show you two different techniques. In each video I show you a different basting technique. I also share with you details in the Cricut Maker Block of the Week – Week 12 post.
In this first video, I show you how to baste using pins, and quilt using a walking foot. This is the easiest for beginners.
In this second video I show you how to baste using basting spray, and quilt by free-motion quilting. This gives you a lot more freedom to be creative.
Binding. Week 13:
