Summer Sampler 2018 :: Giza

At first glance, I was a leeetle concerned about this week's Summer Sampler block, Giza. Designed by Faith/Fresh Lemons Quilts and inspired by the Great Pyramids of Egypt, I assumed it would be paper-pieced, and was right there. Let's just say it looks trickier than it was!


One thing I tried this time was using a wooden roller to flatten the seams as I went along, then giving the segment a good press once the piecing was done. It worked really well!



Though the mix of fabrics on this block are a little more out there, I think the blocks look great together. So far so good!

  1. A seam roller is the perfect tool for paper piecing. I'm glad the block went together easier than you feared!
