Take a long cool sip and sit back and relax. That tastes like summer to me!

The cup of lemonade pattern is two halves. Choose a small print for the straw – a stripe cut on a diagonal would be super cute!
This block is very straightforward to piece. The only tricky part is when you sew the two parts together. You want the line for the top of the cup to match up when the sides are sewn together. To do this, place the right side of the cup, face down on the left, about 1/8th” down from the top edge. See picture below.
|See where the seam ripper is pointing?
That is where you need to slide the top pattern piece down a little.
I suggest increasing your stitch length to 4.5 or 5 when sewing the halves together, checking to make sure they match up, then resewing the seam with a 2.0 stitch length.
Be sure to add your block to the Inspired by Ellison Lane Flickr Group! I can’t wait to see your cups of lemonade.
And don’t forget to use #summersamplersewalong on Instagram and Twitter! I want to be sure to see your blocks!
