Summer Sampler Series Round Up

Here they are in all their glory – the twelve blocks of the Summer Sampler Series. I do plan to arrange them in probably the same order as the icon on the summary page. Now to think about finishing details…to sash or not to sash? If you haven’t checked out the Flickr group to see everyone else’s completed blocks, be sure to stop by. There are some amazing creations!

Summer Sampler Series : Flower Garden Path

Today is day four of the Summer Sampler Series! Head on over to Katie’s blog for instructions on making the Flower Garden Path block. I can’t wait, this is also one of my favorites! I’m told there are lots of half square triangles, so it will be time to flex those trimming muscles.

I will be posting the block tutorial Wednesday and it will be our first paper pieced block. {Take deep breathes, you can do it!} For those participating and who have not done paper piecing before, please read through this great, simple tutorial.

As always, don’t forget to post your block and any questions in the Flickr group. Check back later for my finished block!

Update: Here’s my block!

Quilt Top Work in Progress

I am going to be offline most of next week so I wanted to leave you with something pretty to look at while I’m not blogging. I started cutting into my Parisville this week. I am really liking how the colors work together – this may end up being a nice quilt for my family room!

Also, I have signed up for a Twitter account so if anyone is over there, come find me! @FreshLemons I can’t promise I will ever say anything deep and meaningful but hopefully it will be another way to keep in touch! I’m having a lot of fun keeping up with all the Quilt Market tweets and pictures. It’s *almost* like being there.
