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. *******************

If you come here every Wednesday to read about our Splendid Sampler progress...I don't want you to be disappointed.  But, hey -- WE ARE SIMPLE MORTALS, people...and mothers, grandmothers, doing the best we can to survive these blankety holidays.  SO I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NEW TO REPORT...

But -- just in case you missed this last update -- WE'LL EVENTUALLY GET TO IT!!

Here's the thing....this time of year is SO DARN BUSY -- it's hard to keep up with two block designs each week. MUCH LESS all the bonus blocks. Holy Cow. You'd have to be some kind of Superwoman to do that!!
Even though Linda and her husband Don were out of town for a ONCE IN A LIFETIME trip to New York City to see the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- when she came home, she DID ALL THIS SEWING!!
Linda and Don went to New York to watch their grandsons march in the parade!
Their Thanksgiving Dinner was a cruise...with some beautiful views of the city...
And, then, she did all this...
