The months have slipped by since I last posted progress on The Splendid Sampler quilt along. We are currently on Block 61 with a cute little back to school Bonus Block (which I haven't worked on yet). This is my version of Block 61 entitled Traveler.
I must say this has been a wonderful experience. There are a lot of very talented quilters sewing along and there are a lot of new quilters along for this most Splendid journey.
It is always a pleasure to see the blocks each quilter makes. Even though we are all using the same basic block design/pattern, with the differences in fabrics, colors and creative license no two blocks ever look exactly alike. I am constantly drooling over fabrics and blocks. I am using Pat Sloan's fabric line "One For You One For Me" for this sampler.
As of this posting, I have 58 of the 61 blocks completed. There are three hand embroidery blocks in various stages just begging to be completed; but my abilities at this give a totally new perspective on the term "slow as a snail" or "snail's pace". They will eventually be completed and put in place with the rest of the blocks. Here are the poor little embroidery blocks...and in case you are wondering ... I'm using the Sticky Fabri-Solvy water soluble stabilizer to print the designs on. Best stuff since sliced bread!
As of right now the plan is to sash this with the dark blue swiggly fabric in this line with possibly adding little cornerstones from the lime green dot. BUT a girl can change her mine. All I know for sure is that this entire sampler top will be made from the One For You One For Me fabric line.
The Splendid Sampler and jump in!
