The Splendid Sampler

I am so excited to be included in an amazing group of quilters as a block DESIGNER for Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson's newest project The Splendid Sampler!

This is a year long online quilt a long introducing 100 - 6" blocks contributed by designers from around the world. There will be many techniques and tricks used in these blocks. So much to learn and try!

We will kick off the program Valentine's Weekend. 2 blocks will be released a week for a year. All the block instructions will be free during this time and you will make thousands of new friends along the way!

In March, 2017 Martingale will publisher a book with the designs.

So this is the best part! Remember when we played with Sylvia's Bridal Sampler, Loyal Union Sampler and the Tula Pink City Sampler? We featured blocks on our blog AND blocks in the store! We are going to do it again! Only this time we are playing along with Pat and Jane and thousands of our new closest friends!
