Summer Sampler 2019 :: Rope Twist

So.... surprisingly enough, it took us five weeks before we encountered paper-piecing in this year's Summer Sampler. The block design is by Amy Friend/during quiet time, and is named Rope Twist, and it's easy to see why.

As paper-piecing goes, it went together very easily, and I did take Amy's suggestion and used my light box. I hadn't gotten very comfortable using it with paper-piecing yet, but Faith Jones posted a video that really helped, and I'll try it again next time. So it worked well for me to have a quick and painless block this week. Now waiting (im)patiently for next week!

Week 4: Victorian Tile [nested seams]
Week 3: Curious Crossing [improvisational piecing]
 Week 2: Pixelations [half-square triangles]     Week 1: Spring Fever [precision piecing]


  1. This is one of the summer sampler blocks I really like, and yours looks great! I've wondered how this design would look with ombré fabrics. Pretty good, I'm guessing.

  2. Nice block and easy with paper piecing technique
