Hello Everyone,

This post has been a long time coming... Last year the fabulous Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson teamed up and created The Splendid Sampler.  What is The Splendid Sampler you ask?? Well... it is a FREE Sampler Quilt project.  

Pat and Jane asked over 80 quilt designers to design a block for the sampler, including ME... and I am honored to be a part of this wonderful group!!  Over the next year, twice a week a two block patterns will be released and you will be able to make them!  Fun!!!


You can see the "road map", release dates, and all the designers participating by clicking here.

You can read all about it by clicking here.

Right now there is over 13,000 people who are participating too!  Pat and Jane created a Facebook group where people are posting their first blocks.  You can join the group by clicking here.  The first pattern was released on Sunday, February 14, 2016.  So there is plenty of time to get it done before Thursday's block is out.

Go here to the home page and find the latest news.  And use the convenient tabs at the top to find out other information when you want.

If you look on my sidebar you will see a Splendid Sampler button.  So if you are ever looking for the website again, just come here and click the button and it will take you to the website.

I hope you will all join in!  It will be fun to see what everyone is making and the colors that you are choosing.  

Until Next Time...
