It's only two weeks now until I can show you my design in The Splendid Sampler project! It has plenty of stitchery so you may need to find a comfy spot on the day because your fingers will be busy for awhile.
In the meantime though, have you made any or all the blocks from the 27 already shared?
I'm picking through and choosing sewing themed blocks for a wall quilt to display in my sewing room.
Yesterday's honey of a block was Pat Sloan's sewing machine and because the designers have had access to all the blocks since last year I was able to make my version a while ago. The fabrics used are scraps of Lecien and Moda pieces from my oddments bin...
After stitching down the applique I added one of my treasured vintage buttons for a pop of creativity which gave it a retro style finished look!
Here's the first two Splendid Sampler designs I made in my choice of sewing themed blocks...
Head over HERE to the Splendid Sampler website to download all 27 blocks shared so far.
Some are patchwork, some applique, and others are embroidery - but they're all free and gorgeous!
I'm waiting to begin the next few Splendid blocks for my quilt because I need to complete the tutorial for a set of hanging pockets I'll be sharing here on the blog later this week.
I said the other day it would be ready on the 17th, but as this sciatica issue has slowed me down a bit recently I'll push the tutorial forward to the 19th.
A wise decision, methinks.
Enjoy your day sweet friends,
