Splendid Sampler Anniversary & Giveaway!

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!

Giveaway!

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!

Amy

    I think I loved Jen Kingwell’s sweet little vase the most. And since I’ve never been much of a team player, I really got a kick out of coming up with substitute blocks that were more to my taste and meaning.

    Amy, I live in Iowa along the Mississippi River. I cannot pick just one favorite Splendid Sampler block. It would be like asking who is your favorite grandchild…can’t do it! I am one of the Modern Heritage Quilters doing your quiltalong and enjoying ALL of the blocks you have been posting on your Facebook site.. but I do LOVE the PLUS blocks sew much. I might just have to make the Comfort quilt after our MHQAL is finished! I also have a wedding quilt to make by September…hmmm, which other of your MHQ do I need to choose. Congrats on the book…I dangerously LOVE ALL the quilt patterns in it…first time that ever happened!!!

    I’m a from Iowa. Doing lots of sewing these last two months. Made a Jelly Roll quilt for my husband using a few of his dads and his shirt in the mix of strips. Had to use the triangles I cut of into a small quilt. Finished a top for my brother, the favorite block was quartered stripes and it all from one piece of fabric. Made a wall hanging top. Found some more patriotic triangles and sew them together also. Sew a panel that had “Cabin Rules” as we live in a log home. And made a charity quilt top. Have lots of quilting to do on the tops.

I’d have to say many times it’s the block I just finished. I just finished block #79, Spool of Inspirational Threads,” and I love it. I also recently finished “Button Basket,” and it was adorable.

    Hi. I’m from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I love what I’ve seen with your name on it around the Internet. I only got three blocks made so my choice is limited, but I really enjoyed Block 68 WIld Roses. I put it on a makeup bag for my SIL for Christmas. I had a blast choosing different fabrics to show shading on the petals, and doing different stitches for my raw edged applique. I think what I’m looking forward to most is trying all the different methods of piecing and quilting and learning as I work through the blocks over the next few years.

    I do my stitching in Winlaw, British Columbia, Canada. My go to block has always been the Churn Dash; it’s fun to fussy cut the Center square or even add photo blocks in there. However I was just hosting a group at our local Guild and I helped one of my sister quilters paper piecing a Bird of Paradise block. Had to come home and stay up until 3:00 am to do the block myself. But then my Sampler Book arrived today and I was glancing through it. I am in love with blocks, patterns, fabric and reasons to play with them all! What a great addiction we all share!
