The Splendid Sampler™

The Splendid Sampler™ Wednesday
 (...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 new block designs come out twice a week....on Sunday morning and Thursday morning.


Block #10, designed by Sherri McConnell, is called IOWA!!
Block #11 is called Crocheted Thoughts
Of course, Sandy did BOTH BLOCKS.
And that's very impressive, right?? To do TWO new blocks the same week the designs came out?? yes, Sandy -- VERY IMPRESSIVE...
Who did these two very different versions of IOWA?
And then, two different versions of Crocheted Thoughts??
Yes, our over-achiever, Linda P...!!
GOOD JOB, GIRLS. But, alas, for some of us -- this wasn't the week for quilting. I had a little girl to take to Chicago...and LK had a book to read.
On this day -- LK and I were quite happy to toast the success and creativity of our sister sewists.
