Pisa ~ Summer Sampler 2018

Pisa ~ Summer Sampler 2018 Quilt Along

This week marks the 13th block of the Summer Sampler Series 2018 Quilt Along!  This week we are just traveling a few hours from our last destination of Milan, Italy…to Pisa!

Pisa ~ Summer Sampler 2018 Quilt AlongI designed this block and was inspired by the detailing on the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  I simplified the innermost section of the stonework and focused on the outer points and inner diamond shape.  This block is foundation paper pieced and I think it would look awesome in a repeating pattern as a full quilt.

    Hi Faith, love this block & can’t wait to start it this week. I just realized I haven’t been receiving your blog posts for sometime now – so I resubscribed! Just wanted to tell you that you were the first quilting blog I signed up for (& my favorite!) & I always was so excited to get your postings. With the Summer Sampler going on I’m always on fb & ig with that so didn’t realize I wasn’t receiving yours. Hope I’m back on the list!
