I Feel Splendid!!! 

I feel Splendid because my Splendid Sampler Quilt is done!  It is quilted and bound too:).  Yea! Happy dance!!

It has been a year and a half and 82 blocks since I started this amazing adventure.  Some of the blocks were easy and others were extremely tricky.


One of the hardest blocks, but also one of my favorites was this beautiful dress block.  The paper piecing was a bear!  But I did it and learned a lot:)


My very favorites were definitely the embroidery blocks.  I never knew how much I like to embroider in the evenings.  Thank you Splendid Sampler:)!

I went out of my normal red and orange depression era color scheme favorites, and went with a peach, aqua, and gray with a bit of mustard splashing  around. 

It was kind of hard to be excited about the colors for a whole year, but I am glad I stuck with it.  The quilt is a perfect SWEET softness that I just love❤️


I used a dark peach for the backing and bound it with a black with a white large dot.   I had one extra block that I added to the back along with a large tag that I printed out on my computer.


Here is a picture of the complete quilt.  It measures about 66″x 66″.  I wanted it small enough to hang on the wall in my quilting room.   And yes,  I had to climb on a bar stool to get this picture!  I’m glad I didn’t fall!  Lol:).   


Yep, you heard me right,  this one is for ME!!   I could never ever part with all of the work and memories in this quilt.


I feel a bond with all of my fellow “Splendettes”.  It was so fun watching everyone do the same block but having it come out so differently because of color or creative genius.

Yes, it has been a SWEET and Splendid journey that I will always remember and cherish.  Thank you Pat Sloan and all of the designers for bringing this all together:)

  1. Wow wow wow Tracy! What an amazing job. I love your colour scheme and the blocks are beautiful. I made a quilt with the first 50 blocks and then stopped making further blocks – totally admire and appreciate the hard work that went into your SS quilt
