The Splendid Sampler

The Splendid Sampler

Created by Pat Sloan and Jane DavidsonThe Splendid Sampler started on February 14, 2016.  One hundred blocks designed by over 80 quilters and distributed two a week. And there is an occasional bonus block thrown in.

I made three or more blocks every week from May 24, 2016 through February 16, 2017.  Then I pulled the quilt together with borders and FINALLY finished the sampler on May 4, 2017.

It’s was a fun and challenging project!  Some of the blocks were very difficult and others were easy-peasy.  It definitely made me a better quilter because I tried many different piecing methods that I would never have attempted. Click on any of the following pictures to see that post.
