I am so impressed with all of the finishing on everyone’s Splendid Samplers! They are all so so beautiful:). It makes me excited to finish mine. The end is in sight…..well, maybe a few more weeks of piecing and then on to the setting.
I have been busily sewing and am happy to say that ten more of these blocks are now in the rear window. Yea! These are the ones I worked on:
Gran’s Button Jar– This was my favorite:). I am FINALLY getting the hang of needle turn embroidery and must admit that I like it. If there is one thing I have taken from this splendid journey, it is that I love to embroidery. Who knew?!
First Purse-Aren’t those little buttons for the clasp adorable?
Skyscrapers- I tried her raw edge appliqué. I think it fits this modern block.
Dedication Rose– I’m not crazy about the machine stitched black appliqué stitch, but oh well. I have quite a few of those “oh, well” blocks.
Whirling in Circles–
Fleur de Lei– I remember seeing these appliquéd quilts when I went to Hawaii and was so impressed. If I ever go back to Hawaii, I will buy some fabric and make my own Fleur de Lei Quilt.
In the Sunshine– My machine has a small alphabet stitch. I thought this block was the perfect block to wave the Splendid Sampler and date on!
Whew! What a lot of sewing! I still have about 20 to go, but I can do this!! Here is a computer lay out of most of my blocks. SWEET!!! I can’t wait:)!!
Thank you for stopping by!
