Summer Sampler 2019 :: Twist and Turn

When this week's Summer Sampler pattern came through in my email and I saw the design up close, I was totally surprised to find that it was composed of equilateral triangles. Designed by Jemima Flendt of Tied With a Ribbon, I found it more finicky to sew rows together than I did the actual triangles. Go figure. But all is well enough, and I really like how the 'white' fabric is a key player in this one.

SO, we're 16 blocks in, and I'm feeling good about how all my blocks are playing together.

Week 15: Circle Gets the Square [color and fabric placement]
Week 14: Dandelion Clock [freehand foundation piecing/improvisational curves]
Week 13: Altitude [diamonds]     Week 12: Fussy Love [fussy-cutting]
Week 11: Bird's Eye Weave [stripes+curves]     Week 10: Off Kilter [partial seams]
Week 9: Oasis [inset pieced circle]     Week 8: Fierce [tiny piecing]
Week 7: Sparkler [transparency]     Week 6: Cul de Sac [curves]
Week 5: Rope Twist [paper-piecing]     Week 4: Victorian Tile [nested seams]
Week 3: Curious Crossing [improvisational piecing]
 Week 2: Pixelations [half-square triangles]     Week 1: Spring Fever [precision piecing]
