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.

  • My view for the week. #summersampler2018 #moderntraditionalism #sampler #quiltalong #quilt
  • We are traveling to Norway for our final block of the #summersampler2018 Quilt Along! Designer @warmfolk was inspired by a nomadic art project by architect Sami Rintala called “SALT.” The installation is modeled after the fish racks along the coast where, traditionally, fish were dried in the harsh winds before winter.

  • Worked all week on this (sideways...need a taller design wall) quilt! Gifting it today!
  • Inspired by Art Deco in NYC, @the_tattooed_quilter designed the Chrysler Building block! (Third photo source: “Chrysler Building” by Supermac1961 (CC BY 2.0)) #summersampler2018
  • Moais, designed by @carolina_oneto , is inspired by the ancient statues on Easter Island. (Third photo credit: Ian Sewell • CC BY 2.5) #summersampler2018

  • This block is called Pantheon, designed by my cohost @lee.a.heinrich ! Lee was inspired by the ceiling of The Pantheon in Rome (second photo by Lee Heinrich) #summersampler2018
  • I’m so behind on sharing my #summersampler2018 blocks! 🙈 I’ll be catching up starting...now! I designed this block, Pisa, based on some of the beautiful detail work on the Leaning Tower of Pisa. (Third photo credit Sébastien Bertrand (CC-By 2.0))
