Splendidly Sewing

I think I might..I repeat, MIGHT just catch up with my fellow Splendettes on my Splendid Sampler.  Well, probably not, but I WILL finish!  It is kind of sad seeing this QAL ebbing to a close. Just a few more weeks.  Wow! What a year!

I am happy with the last few days progress. I have finished nine more blocks. Yea!

Here are the blocks I completed: 

Bee Happy –  This was by far the hardest block I have done out of all of the blocks.  Some how I even managed to have my bee face the wrong direction!  My English paper piecing was awkward and a bit wonky.  I don’t care though.  I am just glad I could do it at all.Look at those teeny tiny stitches!  A few of the pieces were only about 1/2″ total size.  That made for quite a bit of fabric bulk at the points.  All in all I still like it.  I don’t think I will be doing any odd shaped, teeny EPP in the near future though!

Hearts and Flowers—  I really love this block. If I have learned any one thing through this Splendid journey, it is that I love embroidery blocks.I find it so relaxing to sit in the evenings with a needle and thread and make a beautiful flower or two.It is a pleasure.  I am looking forward to getting back to my other embroidered quilt project Salem Quilt Guild.  

The rest of these blocks were fairly simple and quick to sew up.

Starting Point-

Summer’s Gift-

Homeward Bound-

The Icing on the Cake-

Rising Star-

Bows-

First Stitch-

I am excited to see these SWEET blocks all come together.  I think I have even decided on a setting for them.  We shall see…

Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Your blocks are great, and you’re catching up. I’ll have to go back and see if I have hearts and flowers. Mostly I’ve only downloaded the stitchery ones. I don’t remember that one, though. Yours looks really nice.
