Can you believe it’s been a year since we started stitching Splendid Sampler blocks? It seems like it was just yesterday!

I have to admit, I didn’t make it as far into the blocks as I had hoped, but I know there’s lots of chances to jump right back in and keep making the blocks. I’ve managed to add more fabrics to incorporate into this quilt, even though I haven’t been stitching them up lately. I find a little piece of something special and tuck it away for the eventuality that I will sew them!

I can’t wait to get a copy of the book, and sew more from it!


To celebrate such a momentous occasion, a fun giveaway is in order!

I have a Sunday Drive Layer Cake by Pat Sloan, and a set of gift cards that I designed.

To enter to win, leave a comment, telling me where in the world you are stitching, and a favorite block that you made over the course of the last year!

The giveaway will be open until February 21, 2017.

Good luck & thanks for stopping by!
