summer sampler 2020 quilt

The next quilt finished : Summer Sampler 2020! After the quilting series Summer Sampler 2019, I have also made the 2020 version. But with some changes. Instead of making only 16 blocks, I have opted for a similar version of the 2019 Summer Sampler and made 20 blocks.

The layout is 4 x 5 blocks with sashing and corner stones. All blocks are 12″ finished and sewn with different patchwork techniques. Like foundation paper piecing, sewing curves or half-square triangles. This time an easy piecing quilt along with some fabulous blocks designs.

I have added two inch wide strips between the blocks. The corner stone units with square in square block – are also two inches finished size. For the interior squares I have used all solids as in the quilt, mostly Kona solids.

Backing is a bedding sheet from IKEA with a paisley pattern in white/grey/black colors.

I have quilted the Summer Sampler 2020 with a wavy stich pattern using the walking foot quilting. Quilting thread is from Aurifil – Mako 40/2 – color 2600 Dove.

For the binding I have used all solid fabrics in the quilt, changing color shade all 20″.
