Summer Sampler

This week is my first block in this year's #summersampler2016.  Click here to link through and buy the Summer Sampler if you're interested in joining in - you can catch up at any time.  My first block is called Deck Of cards and involves foundation paper pieced half square triangles with the block then being turned on point and setting triangles added to square it up.

As with any block, changing the placement of the colours within the block produces a whole variety of the same block and I've used the same four colours differently within the block layout in the image below to show a few options you could play around with.
