Hello and happy Valentine’s Day! Today is the year anniversary of the release of the first free Splendid Sampler block pattern. Now that all of the patterns have been released, we are gearing up for the release of the finished book which will include all of the patterns!
I mentioned the other day that I was able to sew together my Splendid Sampler
blocks last week while I attended a quilt retreat!Here are a few more photos and close ups. I’m really happy with how this quilt turned out.
I was able to piece all of the blocks, and add sashings, posts, and side and corner setting triangles all from my scraps and stash.
I did run to the store yesterday and purchase a Chestnut Street floral for the outer border. I can’t wait to put it all together!
This quilt just makes me smile…not to mention it really reminds me of spring which is just around the corner.
There will be some fun giveaways going on today…visit the Splendid Sampler home page to enter the main giveaway (three winners…one from the US, one from Australia, and one from another country). There are also a lot of Splendid Sampler block designers (including me) hosting individual giveaways today. Leave a comment below on what you find most inspiring about the Splendid Sampler blocks and quilt along, and I’ll send some quilty goodies to one commenter. Giveaway open until Tuesday, February 21st.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
