PFW: 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. I'm doing this with my TMBC...and, therefore, it is my pleasure to BLOG ABOUT IT every Wednesday. *******************

During our Princeton Featherweight Workshop, when we took our lunch break, we also did our weekly Splendid Sampler™ sew and tell.  Because Jackie was visiting from North Carolina, we thought it would be fun to show her our ENTIRE BODY OF WORK...
Sandy started to lay out some of her blocks...
And she had to do several different layers
She made one special pillowcase for each grandchild.
It is very impressive, eh?
The Splendid Sampler has been a terrific way to learn MANY DIFFERENT sewing/quilting techniques.
When it was Linda P's turn -- she needed a suitcase to bring in her block collection.
Remember -- she makes TWO VERSIONS of each block!!
Yep. Two different versions of EVERY block, and there are at least two blocks every week.
Yes, two of everything...
THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY there is the very real danger that I might have confused some of these pictures -- and I can't be sure who made which blocks -- Sandy or LP. The only thing I know for sure is that IT WASN'T ME..!!

Great job, ladies!!  Jackie was absolutely blown away!!
