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.

At the Featherweight Workshop at the Princeton Library, my sister Deb issued a challenge to the TMBC by sending some embroidered designs. 

Everybody picked one to take home...and the challenge was MAKE SOMETHING...
LP picked the top piece. And, of course, being our resident over-achiever -- she was the first to complete a project.
With Featherweight fabric on the sides.
LK is LOVING HER new Featherweight!!
And look what she made!! Yep, inspired by LP, LK also made a cover for her Featherweight.(since she's leaving it up all the time now!)
LP did doubles of both blocks.
AND LK had another finished project to share with us.!!  She made a table runner from vintage hankies (great idea, Mary Mulari!)  SHE WAS ALL SMILES...
Sandy shared her completed quilt top (from a three month quilt-along)
Back to the SS blocks, Sandy used Mary Mulari fabric for the pieced block.  And she is loving all the hand embroidered blocks (yes, that is sarcasm).
