This is a quilt along based on blocks in Barbara Brackman’s book The Encyclopedia Of Pieced Quilt Patterns.

Fabric Requirements: We estimate that each 12.5 inch (unfinished) quilt block will take the equivalent of a fat quarter to make; three yards of printed fabric and two yards of solids should be more than enough.

Quilting Basics: There are many helpful online tutorials for beginning quilters–Elizabeth Hartman of Oh Fransson! has a great series here: Quilt Making Basics.

Summer Sampler Quilt Along Flickr Group: We’d love to see your fabric selections, process shots, and answer any questions through the Summer Sampler Series Flickr group.

Summer Sampler Series Anthology PDF: If you would like to purchase the PDF version of the Summer Sampler Series Anthology, you can do so in the following shops:
Craftsy
Faith’s Pattern Shop
Lee’s Pattern Shop
Katie’s Pattern Shop

Teachers, shop owners, and guilds: Would you like to teach the Summer Sampler Series as a class, or run it as a block-of-the-month series? Purchasing copies of the Summer Sampler Series Anthology for all of your participants gives you full permission to teach the series publicly, and we offer discount pricing on the purchase of four or more copies. Email Lee, Katie, or myself for more information.

  • Basically all the suburban animal life is happening in my backyard tonight.
  • Week 8 of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! This week we travel to St. Augustine, Florida. I designed this block after visiting the Castillo de San Marcos over Spring Break. The block’s design is modeled after the view of the fort from above. #nationalpark #castillodesanmarcos #quiltalong #foundationpaperpiecing
  • This week in the Summer Sampler 2018 Quilt Along, we are traveling to Germany to make this block, Half Timber. It is inspired German architecture, designed by @lee.a.heinrich #summersampler2018 #quiltalong
  • Kyler’s not the only creative one this summer. Avery is making blankets for Project Linus. Her plan is to make as many as she can in 20 hours to earn her @girlscouts Cadette Service Bar. We think she can make between 15-20. She is planning on making slime to sell to raise money for the fleece fabric. #girlscouts #cadette #juliette #projectlinus #serviceproject
  • So this is back on the design wall...Kyler’s blocks from the #notyourmamasbee ! We are waaaaaay overdue finishing these quilts up! He sewed an extra block today and we are ready to sash!
  • This is our 5th week of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! We are traveling to Sydney, Australia with @quietplay , designer of the Points block. Fasten your seatbelts- we are foundation paper piecing AND sewing curves! I (obviously) don’t sew curves often, but I love the addition of this block in the collection so far! It’s not too late to join us - click the link in my profile for all the details!
  • Avery is taking the Girl Scout Outdoor Challenge this month! And since she’s not allowed to have her own Instagram, I thought I’d post for her here. ☺️ #gsoutdoors This week’s theme is Go The Distance. This is her after she ran the Jeanine Nicarico Memorial Fund for Literacy GlowRun 5k on June 2nd.
  • Week 4 of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! This week we are traveling to Egypt for our block, Giza. When I designed this block, I was inspired by the entrance to the Great Pyramid in Giza. #quiltalong #foundationpaperpiecing
