Staff member Leslie Knoop designed Summer at the Lake for Quilt Sampler® Spring/Summer 2011 magazine.
Valerie Krueger machine-quilted a variety of swirl and leaf motifs in the blocks and borders of Summer at the Lake.
Using fabrics from the Baby Circus collection from Quilting Treasures , quilt tester Laura Boehnke adapted Summer at the Lake to make a six-block version fit for a nursery. The outer border (cut 6-1/2" wide) is ideal for showcasing novelty prints.
