If I handed you 100 free block patterns and told you that they would become a precious gift if you made them, would you pick your most treasured fabrics? Would you treat each block as if were something you’d be handing down to your family? Would you do your very best sewing and enjoy every moment? Would you schedule time every week for a year to finish this precious gift?
Start picking your best fabrics (the fabrics that touch your heart when you look at them) and get ready for the gift of the year from Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson! These two designers are giving the quilting community 100 free quilt blocks, throughout 2016 and into 2017. You’ll meet 83 designers who have each designed a block, and you’ll learn new techniques along the way. This is something you don’t want to miss! You can read all about it on The Splendid Sampler website. Click on the “about” link at the top of the Splendid Sampler page, and information will come your way!
In case you think I’ve forgotten to announce the winners of the All in a Row book, rest assured I haven’t! I’ve listed the winners below. If you already have the book, turn to page 65 and check out Janet Clare’s Bunny Playdate. When I saw this row, my heart melted and I was ready for a play-date! Janet has a method of making adjustable templates so you can position your applique bunny in different ways. She uses brads and card-stock! Find some pretty card-stock for these bunnies, and use the templates to decorate a wall or use as gift tags. Janet’s a cover girl on the book and you can see her row second from the top.
If your name and comment are listed below, email me your address because you’ve won a copy of this book!
