Community Sampler Week #10!

Welcome to a new block release day of the Community Sampler sew-along!

Block No. 9 -- Double-T

This week's release is for block number NINE of the Community sampler! For those of you that are new to my blog, Sharon Holland and I are co-hosting this block-of-the-week community sew-along, and you can visit my Community Sampler Page above in my tabs bar to retrieve all of the released PDF's so far to jump in anytime! We're so thrilled to have so many sewing with us once again!

Community Sampler Sew-Along

Today's PDF is block NINE -- Double-T. For the Double-T block we're making no-waste Flying Geese and Half-Square Triangle units once again, two piecing techniques that we've already used a few times. I hope this block is an easy, enjoyable block for you. I loved making this one!

Community Sampler Week 10

For my Double-T block I'm using four pretty prints from my Love Story collection for Art Gallery Fabrics -- Soulmate Blooms, Hugs & Kisses Fresh, Reflection of Love Deep and Darling Echoes Vert!

Double-T Fabrics

For this week's make two-at-a-time HSTs and no-waste Flying Geese, I used Bloc_Loc Rulers to help trim up my units and I am hooked! Have you checked these out? We gave away the ruler sets that coordinate with the Community Sampler a few weeks ago, and our friends at Bloc_Loc kindly sent both Sharon and I the ruler sets to use ourselves. These are a game-changer folks!

Double-T Piecing

I'm really happy with how my Double-T block turned out! I made one change to my original mock-up, swapping out a simple blender for the pretty fussy cut floral to be my center focal print. It would have been fun to add in a fifth fabric, swapping the Fabric B cuts - Eight 3 1/8" squares to be an additional print, incase you're interested in going a little more scrappy with this one!
