Summer Sampler

Amy FriendUncategorizedLeave a Comment

I was invited to design a block for Katie, Lee, and Faith’s Summer Sampler this summer! How fun!

The theme this year is Piecing Bootcamp. Each block will help you to hone various piecing skills. My block is a foundation paper pieced block (shocker!).

Joining me are all these wonderful designers and friends:

Top to Bottom, Left to Right

Row 1: Heather Black @Quiltachusetts, Krista Hennebury @poppyprint, Lynne Goldsworthy @lilysquilts,  Lee Heinrich @lee.a.heinrich, Krystina Hopkins @khquilts

Row 2: Andrea Tsang Jackson @3rdstoryworkshop, Jemima Flendt @tiedwitharibbon, Faith Jones @freshlemonsquilts, Kitty Wilkin @nightquilter, Yvonne Fuchs @quiltingjetgirl

Row 3: Lynn Carson Harris @lynncarsonharris, Stephanie Zacharer Ruyle @spontaneousthreads

Row 4: Jen Carlton Bailly @bettycrockerass, Amy Friend @duringquiettime, Justin Stafford @keatonquilts, Katie Blakesley @swimbikequilt, Jo Avery @mybearpaw

The Summer Sampler works this way. Each Monday, from May 20-October 14, you will receive a new block pattern. In addition to the 21 unique blocks, you will receive 2 suggested layouts or you can come up with your own.

One sampler layout proposes a curved setting for the blocks.

The other is a little more traditional, where blocks are arranged in a traditional grid but alternate with a square within a square block. Both are lovely, I think!

Let’s get to the sign up details! Presales begin May 1 and run through May 19. The Sampler Price is $29.99. You can also use my coupon code to get $5 off. Just use the code QUIETTIME. To buy, click here. You will be redirected to Lee’s site.

I love using a lightbox for paper piecing, my technique of choice! This is also the technique that I will be sharing with my block. If you would like to try a lightbox, you can order now and be all ready for the Summer Sampler. I have another discount code to offer you, this time, use the code DQT2019 at the Daylight Company website at check out to receive 20% off. I work with a Wafer 1 lightbox. It really reduces frustration and increases precision!

I hope you’ll consider joining us this summer!
