Summer Slice Sampler Block

Aaaaand still no baby.   To say I’m over being pregnant might be the biggest understatement ever…but I’m also trying to just rest and enjoy being pregnant for the last time in my life.  DEFINITELY the last time.   ;)  

For those of you that are sewing along with the Summer Sampler, one of my blocks should have been emailed out today!  This one is called Summer Slice, and I figured I’d show you the block I sewed up and a couple of variations.  

This is the block I made… 


…and here are two variations:

 I actually like this one in Sweetwater’s Treehouse fabric better than the one I made.  I just added two different fabrics for the edge pieces instead of all one fabric.  

Summer Sampler Block Treehouse

This one looks totally different, but the only difference is the white is now the print, and the outer edge strips are now white.  Kinda of fun to see the differences!

If you’re sewing along with the Summer Sampler 2016 (more info in my last post) share your blocks in the facebook group!  Have a great week and cross those fingers I have this baby…soon!!!  ;)

    Oh my! They do all look so different just with the play of the fabric choices…tough to say which I like best because I like them all! As for baby…the waiting can feel oh so long ….wishing you well as you await the delivery of your last little one…such a wonderful time for your family…another miracle and blessing.

    Three completely different (and fantastic) looks! How will I ever decide what to do with my block? Good luck on waiting for baby…my first was 5 days past my due date and my second was 2 days overdue, so I know exactly what you mean about being done with pregnancy! I hope you can relax and enjoy the time you have left.

    Hopefully your little bundle come quickly! :) I love your block, and yes, that is fascination how one block can look so different depending on the fabrics.

    This is a great block! Thanks for including the variations. It’s always interesting how the placement of fabrics can give such different looks.

    Love this block, especially in Treehouse! Is that a mock up you did on the computer? May I ask what program? I’d love to be able to do that. Hang in there during these last few pregnant days!

    I love your first block the best. I wish you the best while you wait for your baby to come. Enjoy the babies when they are little since they grow up so fast!

    My youngest son was due on Christmas Day of 1978. Born January 29th of 1979. Ten months and four days later, my most amazing little guy was born! Still an amazing man now!
