|The Splendid Sampler blocks - Patchsmith style.|
It has been a quiet time for the Farmer’s Wife 1930s sew-along as the Gnome Angel sew-along is still on spring break and the two blocks for the Very Kerry Berry group have been covered already (Block 45 ‘Jenny’ and Block 46 ‘Jewel’).
|Block 46 - Jewel - my least favourite block|
So instead I have been slicing and dicing fabric for the Splendid Sampler sew-along and two very lovely blocks they were.
Block 4 – ‘Happy, Happy’ by Jen Kingwell is a gorgeous 6” applique block and, as you all know, I am partial to a bit of applique.

Block 5 was a simple patchwork block called ‘Simple Simon’. It was designed by Celine Perkins and is a ‘disappearing nine-patch’ slice and dice.

I didn’t intend to have a red and aqua theme for this sew-along but it seems that is where my fabric stash is taking me. You can find all the blocks as-and-when I make them here on my Splendid Sampler Pinterest Board.
