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.
Below you can find the Summer Sampler 2016 details, as well as custom shop fabric bundles for the quilt along. You can join at any time. If joining after Week 1, you will initially receive all the patterns up to the current date.
