Today is the beginning of a beautiful quilting journey. If you did not finish your Splendid Sampler quilt, it is not too late to jump in on the second round. The blocks will be 6″ so any combination of Splendid Sampler blocks will work nicely together.
I am sharing my version of block 1 designed by Alex Veronelli! No better person to start us on our Splendid journey than the king of Aurifil thread.
I must admit I did not finish round 1, so I am combining blocks from both series. I am so inspired by the book
and all the creative settings online that
I have gotten my second wind and will be sewing along.
I hope you will also.
A big shout out to all the designers in the quilting community that have contributed their talent and creativity to share their blocks and their stories.
Book 1 shown above, available now. Book 2 already in the works and will be available later this fall.
Thank you to Pat Sloan, Jane Davidson, and Martingale for making it all happen. Also to Moda Fabrics for supplying the beginning round of fabrics.
My version is going to be scrappy since this will be an ongoing project. I would love to hear what your fabric choices are?
I had to show one more pic of my block mainly so I could show my favorite little tape measure. I am obsessed with plastic animal tape measures.
My grandkids can play with them and not break them!
Enough about me, join the FB group to follow along and get your patterns.
If you are not on FB, then follow the Splendid Sampler blog for all the details and patterns.
You are all splendid,
I am still working on both SS1 and SS2… I am using a background fabric- a map print for SS1 and a cream batik for SS2. Then I am raiding my scrap boxes (I have 2) for each block. I can move the blocks around to get a balance when I am all done. I am behind on both books. LOL. But life happens. I like having something there to go and play with when I have the chance between other projects that take precedence. They will get finished eventually.
