Summer Day Quilt
Summer Night Quilt
Here are two versions of the quilt: one with a white background (Summer Day) and the other in gray (Summer Night). Though, I encourage you to come up with something unique and special to you.
The quilt finishes 70” x 70” with 16” x 16” blocks.
3 3/4 yards of gray (night version) or white (day version) for block background, sashing, and borders
1/2 yard of red for border
Approximately 15 Fat Quarters
4 1/2 yards for backing
2/3 yard for binding
There’s a month to select a color scheme and pull fabric. We’ll be starting June 8th. You can expect detailed illustrations to walk you through the block assembly process. We will visit a block each week for 9 weeks. The 10th week, August 10th, is scheduled to finish the quilt top.
If you are unable to participate at the time of posting, no worries, you can still play along when you can.
You’ll learn techniques to construct flying geese, hour glass, pinwheel seam allowances, cutting fabric with templates, and inset seams.
Yes, for coming back, there will be a giveaway each week. Check out the first week’s post for details.
Use my facebook page to share and post images of your sampler. I'd love to see your interpretation of this quilt. Also, this is the place to share tips and techniques to ensure the absolute success in constructing the quilt.
Are you ready? Excited? Let’s plan out fabric.
