In Progress – Summer Sampler 2016 – Block 3

I’m quilting along on my Summer Sampler 2016 quilt! This week, block number three was released and it’s called Snow Cone for obvious reasons. 🙂 This was the first time I’ve ever made a quilt block with curves and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it might be. I used lots of pins and lots of patience! 🙂

In Progress – Summer Sampler 2016 – Blocks 1 & 2

I first saw a picture of Summer Sampler 2016 on Instagram and decided I didn’t have enough projects in my life (haha!), so I signed up. The initial download came with a blank coloring page so I used Photoshop to color it and decide on my fabrics. I knew I wanted to use a bright orange as a focus fabric, so then I selected a turquoise and a green to go with it. Then I chose two lighter blues and one darker blue to complete the range and of course, white as a background. I’m nothing if not predictable with the white background! 😀

Here’s my quilt coloring page mockup:

The Kona Solids I’m using are shown below:
kona-white White
kona-persimmon Persimmon
kona-kale Kale
kona-celestial Celestial
kona-turquoise Turquoise
kona-jamaica Jamaica
kona-robinegg Robin Egg
I think these will work really well together. 🙂

One block will be released each Monday until all 20 blocks are out and about in the wild. Each pattern also includes a sample quilt layout using just that block. At the end of the subscription, three sample quilt layouts will be provided or you can make up your own layout.

The first block was released a week ago and the second one was released today. I finished up the first one last night and I had a little time to kill today, so I got the second one done too. Here they are:
