Summer Sampler 2016 // Week 13 [Diamond Ladder]

Diamond Ladder Summer Sampler Block

Follow on Bloglovin

This week’s block is Diamond Ladder, designed by Faith Jones from Fresh Lemons Quilts. Can you believe that this is block #13 for the Summer Sampler 2016 quilt along?

I had a lot of fun making this block. I need to incorporate a bit more navy into my blocks, and thought this was the perfect one.  I had fun playing with the stripes in this block, I like the movement that the stripes add.


Have you seen the great blocks on the instagram hashtag #summersampler2016? I love looking through it! Some of my favorite blocks recently have been made by @laurelsstichery  (love her aqua background, she blogs at Quilts by Laurel) and @augenbeere.
