– – – – – Happy Valentines Day – – – – – Splendid Sampler Giveaway
Hey there! The Splendid Sampler is DONE —- Well, MINE is not, but all of the blocks and the bonus blocks are online over at the site and the book will be out soon. Today is the big Celebration day full of giveaways. I have fallen way behind on making my blocks, but I plan to finish it some time this year. SO many fun blocks! Check out the Party there and all of the giveaways going on!
Like many of you, I have fallen way behind, but I am determined to finish this quilt. I don’t often make a quilt for us, just for us, without writing a pattern or some other motive behind making it, so I am excited to be making this for our bed. Also, I am NOT wringing my hands over some missed points occasionally in this project. If someone wants to point out my less-than-perfect points….well, they can get the book and make the blocks themselves.
For my regrouping plans on making the remaining blocks, I am starting from the end and working my way back with a couple of in-between ones as well. Here are the four blocks that I have made in the last 2 days:
Kim Neidzwiecki‘s Sunshine Block
Kate Spain‘s Centered Block
Kimberly Einmo‘s Four Corner Spinwheel Block.
Jane Davidson‘s Shell Block
So those are the most current blocks in my Splendid Sampler journey, I will keep posting them in groups as I get them done. Maybe I will get this done by our 28th anniversary this October. Pink and Green were our wedding colors remember?
AND now for the Giveaway. The Blue Nickel Prize will be as many scraps and chunks of the greens. whites, and pinks that I can fit in Medium flat rate envelope — many of the below prints will be in there and others as well. You may even get additional treats like thread or weird little toys, I don’t know what I will stick in there. The winner will also get a downloadable pattern of their choice from my Shop here. Just leave a comment about where you are in the Splendid Sampler journey or any other journey for that matter. I will draw a winner next week on Wednesday sometime.
(also for a day or two more, be sure to comment on my post on the Intermix line of fabric to win some of that as well!)
That’s it. Hope you enjoyed the Splendid Sampler Journey! It doesn’t end here, you can go pre-order the book here and then catch up with those who DID finish their sampler, OR make another if you were one of the speedy ones.
Be sure to leave a comment to enter to win here and over at the Splendid Sampler site ….. and …..as always…..
Keep Sewing, Keep Happy,
