Summer Sampler 2019 :: Pixelations

I could not believe that the second Summer Sampler block was pretty much all half-square triangles! Considering I've been making them like crazy for my Begonia quilt, I've seriously had my fill. But that aside, it was time to make more, and thankfully, Lee Heinrich, the designer of the Pixelations block, provided a template for her Perfect HSTs, and that made very quick work of them, as well as being a nice change of pace. Lee also has a video on How to Sew Together Half-Square Triangle Units Without Losing Points, so I was sure to glance at that before I began.

It was really fun that Pixelations used 10(!) of our chosen fabrics, and I know this is silly, but seeing the finished block alongside last week's Spring Fever block reaffirmed my fabric choices, and I like that first block even more now. I love when that happens!

Week 1: Spring Fever


  1. Your fabric choices are Spot On!

  2. Why would that be silly?! I would definitely check too :) I love your second block! Your fabric selection has so much depth but is still calming, if that makes sense :) xo
