I am having so much fun with The Splendid Sampler blocks this week and I've just gotta share them with you .......
Block 24 – ‘’Inspector Sidekick’ is a traditional patchwork block designed by Michele Foster. I spun the corner blocks to tie in with the blue polka dots but it would've looked good had I left it.

Block 25 – ‘Sunday Best’ is a delightful little applique block from the ever popular Anne Sutton. This block was particularly fun – with little touches added with embroidery (buttons, pocket, flower stem).

Block 26 – ‘Dreaming of Dresdens’ by none other than one of The Splendid Sampler organisers, Jane Davidson. The Dresden plate went together well but those little stems and dots were quite fiddly.

Block 27 – ‘Sewing Machine’ by The Splendid Sampler’s other organiser Pat Sloan.

This block reminded me of my Sewing Machine mug rug and was the inspiration for my first buy-one-get-one-free offer but hurry it ends on 31 May 2016.

Block 28 – ‘Stitching Fashion’. I was very, very excited when I saw that Charise Randell was one of the block designers. I wasn't disappointed and I was thrilled to make Charise's paper-pieced block pattern.

So much so that I made another dress in different fabrics.

And finally, today’s block - block 29 – ‘Scrappy Happy Heart’ – another, albeit simpler, paper-pieced pattern from Christa Watson. I made this block totally from pink and red scraps.

Tomorrow I shall make another using my blue and turquoise scraps but more about that next week.
Until then ................
