|The Splendid Sampler Blocks|
There is a bit of a gap in the Splendid Sampler blocks as I have been busy on other things. But that is the nature of life so I have just jumped in as and when I could over the last month and managed to complete five blocks .....
Block 74 – ‘Button Basket’ designed by Karen Soltys. I didn’t quite get the handle in the right place but it is good enough for me.

Block 77 – ‘Prism’ designed by Sara Lawson. I’ve gotta say – this simple patchwork block came along at just the right time. I needed something quick and easy to help me get back to my sewing machine. Sara Lawson’s block didn’t disappoint.

Block 79 – ‘Spool of Inspirational Thread’. I pulled some of my old country favourites out of my fabric pot for this paper-pieced block.. So much to like about this design from Melanie Barrett.

Block 83 – ‘Minnesota Maze’. What a versatile block from Roseann Meehan Kermes. So many different looks depending on your fabric choices and placement. I was lucky that a very generous Amy had sent me the sweetest little orange gingham that went perfectly with Summerfest.
