Summer Sampler 2016 ~ Week 17

Summer Sampler 2016 Quilt Along

This week is all about triangles on the Summer Sampler 2016 quilt along! Week 17’s block is designed by Karen Lewis of Karen Lewis Textiles. It is foundation paper pieced and just a real fun twist on a flying geese design.

I continued along with my scrappy theme. Three more blocks to go and we will focus on putting these together into our quilt tops! It’s pretty fun to think that by the time the weather changes here, I’ll have a new quilt to cuddle under.

Summer Sampler 2016 ~ Week 13

Summer Sampler 2016 Quilt Along

We’ve arrived at lucky week 13 in the Summer Sampler 2016 quilt along. This also marks the last week of summer break around here. We are a mix of getting ready for school to start and enjoying our final days of sleeping in. I designed this week’s block, Diamond Ladder. It’s a skill builder, with a mix of flying geese and hourglass units.

Summer Sampler 2016 ~ Week 10

Summer Sampler 2016 ~ Week 10

We have reached the halfway point of the Summer Sampler 2016 quilt along ~ woohoo! Block ten, Parallel, is designed by Holly DeGroot of Bijou Lovely. This block is assembled using foundation paper piecing, and uses my old frenemy…geometry.

For those fairly new to foundation paper piecing, this one will be a little more challenging than XSpot, which was paper piecing strips. But once you get the feel for working with angles, a new world will open up to you.

Summer Sampler 2016 ~ Week 8

Summer Sampler 2016 ~ Week 8

Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope everyone (in the USA) has fun plans for today’s holiday. Maybe it involves a little time at the sewing machine? Today marks Week 8 (EIGHT!!) of the Summer Sampler quilt along. This week’s block, Deck of Cards, is designed by Lynne Goldsworthy of Lily’s Quilts.

When I first saw this block, I admit I thought “oh no, a million half square triangles to piece and trim…” 🙂 But then I started reading the directions. The HSTs are made by stitching onto a paper template and then cutting on lines…and magic! Tons of perfectly sized HST units. As a newbie to this technique, I was amazed (and in love)!

Here are Weeks 1 thru 8. I’m super happy with how it is turning out! I can’t wait to see everyone’s Deck of Cards blocks.
