The second Splendid Sampler Sew Along has started and this time I am in for at least 100 blocks – a large quilt I intend making for my bed. I have already made a few but the first official one is Hearts Aflutter designed by Pat Sloan.
I have used Janet Clare’s Wordsmith fabric, plus a little of the Lady Edith Downton Abbey peach in the corners and in the centre some Kate Greenaway – Victorian Children fabric.
This is a six inch Churn Dash block that is a bonus block for the Splendid Sampler. As I love the churn dash block I decided to include it and while making it to incorporate a dark green from the Thyme for Friends fabric line.
I think I have now finalised my colours for the making of the Splendid Sampler quilt 2017 and it is mainly The Wordsmith line by Janet Clare
The dark green from the Thyme for Friends fabric collection: Botanical Herbs
and the Downton Abbey Lady Edith fabric: Swirl
As well I love the Kate Greenaway fabric and will cut bits and pieces from it as appropriate.
I hunted around for a couple of colours that I just couldn’t get or would cost too much so decided to use what I already have, plus I love the colours. Janet Clare’s fabric range would have been enough by itself and very classy, however I like a little whimsy and a little more just will gladden my heart.
