Sew On and Sew Forth! -Splendid Sampler

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?

Happy Thoughts-

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.  


Double Bees–

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!

  1. Are you planning to machine or hand quilt this lovely piece? I only ask because those cute little buttons may give you trouble if you’re going to machine quilt, and you’ll have to be careful where you place the hoop if you hand quilt it… I really like the colours and fabrics you’ve selected 🙂


  2. Wow! I love all the color in it! I was the same with you on Dedication Rose – I didn’t think I did a great job sewing it. But after quilting it today it looks a lot better, at least to me. You’re so close to the end now!

  3. Wonderful collection of blocks! I just upsized that #66 block to a 12″ block for a friend an will do a tutorial on it in a day or two so she has it to follow when she sews. I really love the way it looks, and it will go in an American Heroes quilt sometime soon.
