The Splendid Sampler™

The Splendid Sampler™ Wednesday

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. Last Sunday, I got a dozen emails from my sewing posse...they were checking the website, and Facebook, and eagerly awaiting the NEXT new block. IT IS SO EXCITING!!
Jackie, in North Carolina, made the first two blocks using Mary Mulari's fabric.
Block #3 is STUNNING (I haven't tackled this one yet).
Lilly, on her Featherweight, making Block #1...although I helped her, she picked out the fabric and sewed the squares together ALL BY HERSELF...
Sandy pins her finished blocks to the pattern.
None of us are actual we often need to discuss these new techniques.
Linda P. does it over, and over again until SHE HAS CONQUERED THE BLOCK.
Such an overachiever, our are her TWO very different versions of Block #4...
