Summer Sampler Series Anthology

Many of you probably remember the Summer Sampler Series quilt along I hosted along with Lee of Freshly Pieced and Katie of Swim, Bike, Quilt in the summer of 2011. Was it really that long ago? We created the series because all three of us love Modern Traditionalism and we really felt it was just such a great skill builder. I have read many success stories from quilters that learned various new techniques while making the quilt: half-square triangles, flying geese, bias piecing, paper-piecing, piecing equilateral triangles and diamonds, hourglass units, and string piecing.

Lee, Katie and I often get emails and comments about the availability of a printable PDF version of the tutorials for this series. Today I’m excited to announce that we now that have available! Lee has put together a fantastic anthology of the blocks, patterns, tips, templates and almost 150 pictures. They are all in one convenient 86 page PDF document.

You can buy the entire thing for $9.99 in our pattern shops:

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.

And no worries, these tutorials will continue to be available on our websites. The Summer Sampler Series Anthology is simply for those that appreciate the convenience of the entire pattern in one printable document.

    What a great idea as although I love on line tutorials sometimes it’s easier to get to grips with a project on paper or on PDF if going wireless. Off to check this out.
