The Splendid Sampler Block One — Pat Sloan

The Splendid Sampler Block One — Pat Sloan

The Splendid Sampler Sew Along big button


And so The Splendid Sampler Begins.  Here’s the first block. This one is by Pat Sloan, one half of the amazing team leading this Journey.


Her block is called Hearts Aflutter. It is an applique block. Which I don’t really do. Below is my version of the block. I will likely end up buttonhole stitching the edge of the heart by hand. I CAN do needle-turn applique, but I am slow and not super great at it. And I barely have time to to any of these blocks. I think I may be faster at embroidery. We will see.




Not sure which  floss I will use on the heart, but there you go. The first block. Only 99 more to go!
