Summer Sampler Quilt a long

The Summer Sampler 2016 is launching and I am very proud and excited to be a part of it!





Katie, Lee and Faith did the first Summer Sampler 5 years ago and it's amazing to think it has become a regular feature.

This year the 3 ladies invited 7 of us to join in in creating a couple of blocks each.

This time around, they are offering the Summer Sampler as a block-of-the-week subscription program. Click here to pre-order Summer Sampler 2016 for $19.99. That's just $1 per block—for a limited time, ending May 15. After May 15, the price goes up to $24.99, so don't miss out on the chance to save! (European Union customers: You can purchase the Summer Sampler 2016—and now all Lee's other patterns—through her Etsy shop. Click here to purchase.)

One block a week will be introduced, starting May 16, running through September 26. Each Monday  you will get a link to download that week's block pattern. The last block will be delivered on September 26, and instructions for three sampler layout options will be delivered on Oct. 2.
The Summer Sampler 2016 subscription includes:
• fully-tested instructions for each weekly block, with step-by-step diagrams
• three sampler layouts and full instructions for each, delivered at the end of the subscription
• digital mock-ups of ways to use each block in its own quilt layout, for future inspiration
• coloring pages for planning purposes
• access to a private, subscribers-only Facebook group, where you can interact with the designers and other quilters

All the other quilters involved are:

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
Katie Clark Blakesley of Swim, Bike, Quilt 
Lee Heinrich of Freshly Pieced
Lynne Goldsworthy of Lily’s Quilts
Nicole Daksiewicz of Modern Handcraft 

It's going to be such a blast and I can't wait to see everyone's take on it. Go join up and buy here (or here for EU) and don't forget to tag any makes on Instagram with #summersampler2016

See you there!
