Have you seen the activity over at The Splendid Sampler Website?  It’s amazing to see all the blocks coming in!  Many have been adding their own touch to the blocks, and so many looks are created just from the fabrics alone!  You still have time to get started and remember this isn’t a race to the finish […]

    Gale - I just love how soft and sweet your blocks look. I am attempting to make all the blocks as well. So far I am up to date. I am using Christmas fabric from Gina Martin “Tole Christmas” I have only a fq bundle, so I am hoping that will be enough. I will be visiting my sweet granddaughter in New Brunswick in just one more week. I guess I will have to do a quick catch up when I get home. Hope you enjoy your visit with the grandgirls and get lots of hugs and kisses in.ReplyCancel

    Hildy - I definitly plan to make this quilt-along but haven’t decide on my fabrics yet. I was tempted to make a white-red version with a few blocks and the heart blocks are perfect for it (btw I love your Flutter block with the 4-patch heart). But after seeing your blocks I’ll add making a shabby vintage one to my list too.
    Have fun with your granddaughters I’m sure they are excited to see you than you to see them:-)ReplyCancel

    kshackabq - Typically, I don’t join sew alongs, but this one has me hooked. I’m having such fun with these wonderful blocks. Love the soft colors and shabby look of your blocks, Anne. I’m finding the variety of colors and styles is incredibly interesting and definitely part of the fun.ReplyCancel

    DeAnna Dodson - What sweet fabrics! I’m not generally an insect person, but I LOVE the bee fabric. So cute!

    I’ve been collecting these block patterns, but haven’t had time to sew anything. I hope to soon.

    Enjoy your visit with your grandbabies!ReplyCancel

    Colleen - I really like your fabrics and the abundance of fabrics . I do have a few Figtree fabrics that I have just saved because I like them and Robyn Pandolf ( I may be way off on the spelling of her name which is why I used Figtree instead of trying to spell Joanna Figaruo )

  • February 29, 2016 - 5:00 am

    Margaret - Your color choice is inspired! I’m not doing the sampler in part because I have plenty going on now, and in part because I couldn’t think of what fabrics to use so that it wouldn’t look mish-mash. I think your sampler will be absolutely beautiful and I will be eager to see it as you progress.ReplyCancel

  • February 29, 2016 - 5:38 am

    viv - I was so excited to see your block included the bee fabric. I haven’t posted a picture of my block, but I used the golden been fabric in mine. Maybe now I’ll have the courage to post it…ReplyCancel

  • February 29, 2016 - 7:46 am

    Barb R. - Anne, your fabric choices are so lovely – pinks and soft reds and creamy colors – so luscious! I know your Splendid Sampler quilt will be just beautiful. I haven’t started yet (too many other things going on right now) but I’m saving all the patterns and hopefully … one of these days.

    Looking forward to seeing what you are making for your grand daughters too.

    p.s. – are you designing a Halloween quilt?ReplyCancel

  • February 29, 2016 - 11:50 am

    Carrie P. - Yes, I am participating. The quilt along has inspired to get back in my sewing room after 5 mos. of not sewing. I think I am getting my mojo back.ReplyCancel

  • March 3, 2016 - 6:49 am

    Jill Beck - I love the bee fabric but I’m having a difficult time locating it. Could you divulge your source? I like your fabric choices for the Splendid Sampler better than any I’ve seen so far. If I were to make this quilt those are the fabrics I would use, beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • March 5, 2016 - 7:54 am

    Pat Godkin - I love your block for the sampler. I have some of the bee motif fabric. It is so pretty. I used it in one of my train cases.ReplyCancel

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 […]

    Hildy - First thanks for the great package you send me the fabrics are BEAUTIFUL!
    I’m almost finished with my Farmer’s Wife 1930s blocks and since I loved to make these 6″ blocks and now have the time for it I’ll definitly will join the Splendid Sampler! But like I did with the Farmer’s Wife quilt I think I break the 100 blocks done into more than 1 quilt because I know I just can’t quilt a quilt that big. Perhaps 3 quilt: 2 with 25 blocks (one set straight, one on point) and 1 quilt with 50 blocks (set on point). Or 2 quilts: one with 64 blocks (8×8) and one with 36 blocks (6×6) … mmmh I need to think about that.ReplyCancel

    Susan - So excited to start this sampler quilt……..it will be a fun year doing this and seeing every ones samplers…..thanks!ReplyCancel

  • February 5, 2016 - 11:56 am

    Barb R. - The idea for this splendid sampler quilt is really exciting – and what a generous, wonderful gift from all the quilt designers to share these blocks with us. I can’t wait to see what all these blocks look like and all the new techniques we can learn.

    I also read your 5th of the month news today and I’m also so excited to find out about your Halloween designs (I’m somewhat partial to Halloween ‘cuz it’s my b’day!). Everything you do is so wonderful and I know this will be too.

    And Congratulations to Rose Marie and to Diane on winning the “All In A Row” book – lucky ladies.

    Thanks, Anne!

    Colleen - I look forward to you email announcements they are the first I click on always happy and bright. This one is jam packed with information. I have joined in on the Splendid Samlper and looking forward to seeing all the designs from so many different talented designers …. two a week might be a bit ambitious for me to keep up. So many ideas thrilling around in my brain.
    How you get all you done is a mystery to me ….
    Be sure to give your 4 footed friends your love and attention

    Karen in Breezy Point - I’ll have to keep an eye on the Splendid Sampler–it sounds very fun! I received the All in a Row book from you a few days ago–thank you so much! I’ve made one row so far–we’ll see how far I get toward a quilt. Thanks again–it’s a wonderful book.ReplyCancel

    Ada Shave - I love the row quilts, so that will be another one to add to my list of quilts to do.ReplyCancel

  • February 6, 2016 - 3:27 pm

    mimi'sdarlins - Anne, I absolutely love this book (thanks SO much) and am wondering how I can find time to make every pattern in it…I truly am! At first glance Janet’s bunnies looked like they could be cousins of your frolicking bunnies we love so much. I may use Janet’s adjustable templates w/ the brads to make some fun garlands for the grandbabies.
    And now another temptation! I will definitely be watching The Splendid Sampler and hope to make at least some of those blocks in between my other quilts in progress :)ReplyCancel

Hi everyone and welcome to Anne and Laurie’s day on the Moda “All in a Row” blog hop!  I’m not sure who at Moda decided how to assign teams, but when I heard I was partnered with Laurie from Minick & Simpson, I couldn’t have been happier.  I have my own secret fan club for Minick […]
