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. *******************
LP did her doubles, as per usual. THAT GIRL IS A MACHINE...
And Sandy had to play catch-up this week, but she even managed to do the bonus block. SHE, too, HAS NEVER MISSED A SPLENDID SAMPLER BLOCK...!!
Although, the two of them always see something they could have done differently, and they are very critical of their own work...
LK and I just sit back and admire their total commitment!!
Our fifth (when she's in Iowa) member, Sharalan -- is waiting for HER NEW FEATHERWEIGHT to arrive!!
Because Sharalan does not sew...or quilt...but could NOT resist getting a Featherweight -- we decided it would be nice to get her started if we each made her a "project" to work on. You know, pick out the fabric, a pattern or instructions, and put it all in a ziplock bag...right??
Of course, LP had to DO IT RIGHT NOW...and she picked two of her favorite blocks from the Splendid Sampler as her sewing project for Sharalan.
Next week, I should have pictures of Sharalan and her Featherweight!!

P.S. -- glad you're feeling better, Pat -- I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of YOUR new Featherweight, too.
