Back to The Splendid Sampler Project

The Splendid Sampler is a free 100 blocks project organized by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson that started in this past February. I started quilting along with t this project shortly after, then put it aside for the summer. This week I started again! I made 3 blocks so far. There are different techniques through this project from applique to piecing to paper piecing. I decided to work on paper piecing blocks. It is a new skill for me. I actually did paper piecing for the first time because of the Splendid Sampler. I was really worried about it at first, but I jumped right in and once I was done, I realized it was not as difficult as I had thought it would be! 

Here are the three blocks I made this past week:

Block 58 "Homeward Bound" designed by Kelly Liddle

Block 39 "Balls In The Air" designed by Pat Sloan 

Block 54 "Shell" designed by Jane Davidson
