'Summer Romance Sam' Quilt Block

from Maryland Quilter
(7) Name: 'Quilting : 'Summer Romance Sam' Quilt Block
'Summer Romance Sam' Quilt Block
'Summer Romance Sam' Quilt Block

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Techniques used: raw-edged applique with free motion quilting

Pattern Description:

Sam is cruising the streets of his small town. The sun is shining on this bright summer day; the perfect day to meet the girl of his dreams. Sam is the second quilt block in the Summer Romance quilt. The other blocks continue the story with Lucy, their romance on a park bench and riding off together in the sunset. Each pattern is designed to fit comfortably on a 12 inch block. The pattern as sewn in the picture uses raw edge applique which frays when washed. This results in a rustic, folk look to the quilt. This style of quilt block is designed to be free easy and not perfect in any way. That makes it charming!

Approximate time to complete: 2-3 hours.

  • Completed size of quilt block: approximately 12x12 inches (30x30cm)


  • 2 12 1/2 x12 1/2 inch ( 32x32cm) pieces of pink flannel fabric for the front and back of the block
