Summer Sampler 2018 :: Petra

To be honest, I had no idea where or what Petra was, so it was good to learn a little something with this week's Summer Sampler block. Designed by Katie/Swim Bike Quilt, the block clearly represents the Treasury in this ancient Jordanian city.

The block would have been perfectly simple if I had only followed the directions. I totally thought I knew what I was doing starting out, and that plus the unfounded assumption that the block's components were symmetrical, led me astray. My seam ripper being my friend, though, helped everything come together in the end.


  1. I like how you transitioned the fabrics from the bottom to the top of the block.

  2. I am loving all your quilt blocks and the fabrics you've chosen to make them! Beautiful!!

  3. Cool, another of your lovely blocks! Love it when they pop up in my reader :)
