It's Splendid

It was so nice to find a few hours to sew this weekend.  One of the projects I was able to get caught up on was all of the blocks for my Splendid Sampler.


Here are all of the new ones in no particular order. 



I really enjoyed making the little star block.  The other one was another Baby-Lock free block.



We finally had a paper pieced block.  And in the simple 25 patch, I decided to play a bit with color.



And finally the two for last week.  I think these designs are some of my favorites so far!




Even though they have released 17 blocks, you can see I have a total of 18 finished.  I have been making a few other designs that I have seen in various places and added them to the mix.  So far there have been two blocks I have decided not to include.  Even though these blocks all finish at 6", I am enjoying making my two a week.  Only 83 more to go!

I see your colorful solids over there on the left - what a contrast with all the patterning in those florals and dots!
Loving all the fabrics, plain and fancy both!

I think my favorite is the one with five stars all joining each other! That is an intricate looking block for 6 inches! Love the photo with all of the blocks together - what color!

Absolutely gorgeous! And definitely a 180 from the solids.

But I thought you sewed 24/7?! It's nice to know you do take time for yourself sometimes. I love all the blocks. This quilt is going to be a beautiful sampler when its finished. How big are the blocks? Because if you have 83 to go...it appears it's going to be huge!!

You've inspired me to get at my Splendid Sampler today. I've been keeping up sort of. I've been using TulaPink fabrics and have decided to add a bit of Shott cottons to the mix, so I think I'll have to do a couple of blocks today! Thanks for sharing, yours are fabulous!

I love your colorful and exciting Kaffe fabric Splendid blocks. I am working on mine to be just as colorful but my Kaffe fabric collection is not as extensive so on to other fabrics.. Lol
