The Splendid Sampler 2 has launched!

Welcome to the first week of the 
'The Splendid Sampler 2'
Sew along.


Every week for the next 20 weeks Jane and Pat will be releasing one 6" finished block from their second book to kick start the sew along.  After the first 20 weeks you will need the book to continue with Jane and Pat selecting the next block to be made and we all get to stitch along together.

The blocks will be released every Thursday and it is my plan to bog mine here on the Friday.

The first block is .......

"Quilt Market" by Alex Veronelli

"The centre of the quilting industry, is International Quilt Market. Twice a year designer, manufacturers and quilt shop owners share the beauty of fabrics, the variety of stunning quilts, the newest innovations and most importantly, the building of lasting relationships.  When attending Quilt Market, I'm surrounded by friends in an inviting environment. I feel like I'm home. - Alex


And here is my version.


I am going 'scrappy Bonnie and Camille' for my blocks being that I already have a sashing plan I am going to sash my blocks as I go. Hopefully this will help keep me on track. It also makes me make a decision about the sashing colour now so that I do not linger/procrastinate/stall (you get the idea) on it too long.

So here is my finished Block 1.


To find and download the pattern and for all the sew along details visit HERE.
If you follow the links from the Splendid Sampler Blog to the Aurifil blog you might also want to enter the giveaway for some Aurifil Thread. 

I always use Aurifil Thread in my sewing machine and the 
50wt (orange spool) in #2024 is what I use for all my piecing.

Happy Stitching,
