Summer Sampler week 13!

It is hard to believe that we are at the end of our Summer Sampler series. With fall starting next week, the temperature has finally started to drop here. So, you have made 12 blocks (or currently working on your blocks) and now what do you do? The real questions is what do you want to make out of them. Do you use all the blocks together? Do you make more to give you more blocks to work with? If you did both color ways do you combine them together? All of the above?

To answer all the questions…we are having a special Live with Laura on Saturday. Saturday morning at 9:15am Laura is going to show off the different ways she finished her blocks as well as give suggestions on what else you can do with your blocks. 

Since Laura has been buried under event stuff the last 2 weeks she will do a video today on how to make the blocks from the last 2 weeks. She will also talk about what else we need to do with our blocks before putting them in something.

This week we need to measure all our blocks and trim them so they are the same size. If you have never trimmed blocks before be sure to watch the video to see how to do it. All the blocks should be an unfinished 8.5” square so they finish at 8”. If they don’t, that’s ok just make sure they are all the same size. 

We would love to see your finished Summer Sampler project! If you are on social media please tag us at @idahosewing on Instagram or @Idahosewingandvacuum on Facebook and use the hashtag #idsewvacsummersampler . 

So mark your calendars and set your alarms to watch Laura on Saturday! 

Happy Sewing!
