How to Prep for a Summerchase Quilt
Step 1. Grab a Copy of The Summerchase Pattern.
Even if you’re new to quilting or just looking for a fresh, yet simple block, Summerchase is perfect for you.
The Summerchase Quilt Pattern details step-by-step instructions for using Deb Tucker’s V Block ruler to create the 4” V Blocks that make up the Summerchase pinwheel. Pattern includes:
- Clear and easy-to-read photos + diagrams so that you will successfully create a Summerchase quilt of your own.

- Finishing instructions so that you have everything you need to finish your project.
Step 2. Grab Deb Tucker’s The V Block Ruler.
Once you get the hang of it, Deb Tucker’s V Block ruler is lots o’ fun! The V blocks square up beautifully and your quilt top comes out square – and that’s always a good thing!
Step 3. Watch the V Block Tutorials.
Now, if you’re a visual learner, then you’ll love our video tutorials that compliment this quilt pattern.
And for all you Electric Quilt 8 nerds out there (you all are my quilt soul-mates!), if you want to see your fabrics play in this design, then you should watch a quick video on how we used EQ8 to design our Summerchase Quilt.
You will become a V Block expert in no time when you follow our videos and patterns!

Our Finished Summerchase Quilt Details
The Summerchase Fabric
Summerchase displays a wide variety of fabrics – you can really get patchwork-y with this quilt!
We used all Art Gallery Fabrics fabric with the bulk of the prints from Dana Willard’s Summerside collection.
We love the play of the navy, orange, pink, yellow, and green. The white fabric is Art Gallery Pure Elements in Snow and it frames this fabric collection beautifully. Don’t those colors pop?
We used 15 different 1/4 yards and just went crazy, but in a good way!
The Quilting, Quilt Back, and Binding
We kept the quilting simple and stitched an all-over straight-stitch 2” grid.
And let’s talk about that backing! This lovely print is from the same Summerside collection – we wanted to show off those beautiful large flowers!
The quilt binding is Squared Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics in Tangerine. Hmmm, tangerines sound good right about now…
