The Splendid Sampler™ Wednesday
BECAUSE THIS IS MY NEW, REGULAR EVERY-WEDNESDAY-POST...I think I'll just reprint, or repeat this first part...which I know you know already...so skip this part if you're not new here...
The Splendid Sampler™ is an internet sew-a-long created by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson. It is an EPIC sew along...
- 83 fabric designers have created specific blocks that feature different quilting techniques. (paper piecing, fused applique, etc.).
- The blocks will be released each week, and are FREE to participants until March 2017. (at that time, they'll use the designs to publish a book).
- You can use whatever fabric you like.
- There will be pictures on their Facebook page, etc.
The TMBC had a day trip to Peoria. WHICH WAS AMAZING...And, of course, nowadays -- our sew and tell Splendid Sampler™ blocks are a part of our weekly get-togethers.
|Linda brought her most recent blocks with her -- so we got to see them at lunch time...|
|Remember, she makes TWO of every block...|
|Sandy left her "file" in the car -- so her sharing didn't happen until we got back to the parking garage...|
|Linda laid out all her samples on the hood of the van...(wow, I take some crappy pictures!)|
|Judy can make any block look simple...and SQUARING it all up makes a huge difference.|
|Also true with the IRONing...here's Linda, working on Block #3, the pieced heart...|
|I took my Featherweight...|
|WE WERE SO PLEASED with ourselves!!|
|Linda went home and made A SECOND BLOCK|
|Her blocks so far...GREAT JOB, Linda (she is loving Mary Mulari's fabric, too!)|
|I made the cottage block, using the selvage edge and fussy-cutting a flower for the window. It is KINDA the way this block was supposed to look...lol...|
