Summer Sampler 2016

Well hey!  No baby yet, in case you were wondering…the last 2 weeks of being pregnant are the worst.  I’m just popping in to let you know about this fun Summer Sampler quilt along I designed a couple of blocks for: 



There are blocks from 10 designers, and full instructions for that weeks block emailed on Mondays (if you sign up late no worries…you can get all the block instructions anytime).  

Allison Harris of Cluck, Cluck, Sew

Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter

AnneMarie Chany of Gen X Quilters

Faith Jones of Fresh Lemons Quilts

Holly DeGroot of Bijou Lovely

Karen Lewis of Karen Lewis Textiles

Katie Clark Blakesley of Swim, Bike, Quilt

Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced

Lynne Goldsworthy of Lily’s Quilts

Here’s a mock up of the blocks…it will be a fun summer challenge and a good way to learn some new skills!

    Can you tell us how big each block is? Just need to get an idea of the overall size of the quilt.

      Hi Dawn! Each block is 12″ finished. :)

    I WAS wondering (about the baby)! Best of luck when she finally decides to make her appearance :)

    I’ve been on pins and needles wondering about that baby!!!

      Apparently she’s in no hurry to come out into the world…in the meantime she’s getting bigger and bigger! ;)

    I didn’t even think about it but jumped right in! I’ve been having so much fun with Project 48, my first quilt along experience, so I thought why not? I may actually not be able to do this one until a bit delayed, but it looks great, and I’m enjoying the sampler style right now and had been thinking I’d wanted to make one more. So thanks for presenting just what I needed.

      How fun Charlotta! Quilt a longs are fun…I get too behind but luckily with all the block instructions it should be easy to keep up and learn some new things for me! Have a great day!
