I have busily been sewing on my final few blocks for my Splendid Sampler. It has been so much fun:) I finished my final seven blocks this morning and have an elated, sad type feeling.
Here are my final blocks:
This one was a little trickier than I thought it should be. There really wasn’t much of a pattern for the center aqua appliqué pieces. I sewed a circle and cut it to make my pieces. I think it turned out just fine:)
Minnesota Maze- Isn’t the fussy cut flower fun?
The Early Bird— I didn’t think I was going to like this one as much as I do. I had to take a lot of deep breaths and just sew because there were so many tiny little pieces. But it was worth it. I think this block is the iconic block of the Splendid Sampler. I love it!
And my final block–
Here they are laid out and ready to sew together. I have several extra that I am not putting in because I like the size of this. So 81 blocks it is! I will sew these together and add two fun borders. Hopefully I can get these added in the next week or two….we’ll see:)
It has been a simply SWEET and Splendid journey that is almost done. Life is good!
