The Splendid Sampler™ Wednesday

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. *******************
My favorite picture of my new Franken-sewed LP's house during our recent Featherweight Pillowcase workshop
I'm happy to report that Sharalan is BIDDING ON EBAY -- looking for her own Featherweight...GOOD LUCK!
Sandy and LP did both brought blocks  to show this week...
Keeping up their perfect SS record.
see the difference?  LP reversed the black prints.
Sandy's version -- so different when made with different fabrics.
The two LP blocks, as well as Sandy's version.
The SS doing the SS.  SUPER STARS doing the Splendid Sampler!!
But the shock of the day was that LK brought her own Sew N Tell...!!
Using her new Featherweight (and LOVING IT) -- she made SS Block #1...
And a table square, using Loralie Harris fabrics.
You really can't wipe the smile off her face.  SHE WAS SO DELIGHTED...and so were the rest of us!
GREAT job, LK!!!
This is what I did last week...
