Summer Sampler 2020 :: Daylily

So bittersweet, this last block of the Summer Sampler 2020 sewalong! It's been a fun one, and with no traveling this summer, I've been able to keep up every week.

Daylily, a design by Lee Heinrich, consists mostly of half-square triangles, maybe not my favorite in bulk, but at least they go together so nicely.

And with that, I just had to pull out all my blocks and see how they look together. I'm anxious to see them with their sashing, and that'll come soon enough, but for now, things are good.

Week 1: Trellis     Week 2: Infinite Pinwheel
Week 3: Lakeside     Week 4: Tide Pool
Week 5: Brae     Week 6: Convergence
Week 7: Diverge   Week 8: Direction
Week 9: Midsummer     Week 10: Zephyr
Week 11: Swamp Rabbit     Week 12: Orbit
Week 13: Glimpse     Week 14: Like a Butterfly
Week 15: Flux


  1. Wow, it seems like only a few days ago this all got started. Your blocks look great together!

  2. Super piecing and contrast! That's a winner, the block and all the blocks together.

  3. The colors - the peachy color and the green - really stand out but yet are so calming at the same time. Great job (as usual)!

  4. such beautiful blocks, the fabrics and colors look so balanced throughout. nicely done! can't wait to see the finish

  5. You selected such a great color scheme for these blocks! Really pretty. So will you simply sash them vertically and horizontally? Or are you going for something "different." Lee Heinrich gives a workshop on non-traditional layouts, which is where I learned about other block layout possibilities. Will you give "different" a go?
