The Splendid Sampler 2

I hope everyone is having a Splendid Thursday. Today is the release of block 2 for the Splendid Sampler 2 sew a long. The block is Milk and Cookies by Rebecca Bryan. The original block has a pieced background which I opted out of doing.(see previous post regarding trouble following directions.) lol I hand pieced the rings which is fast to do on this little block. If you have wanted to try hand piecing this is a great way to start.
I trace the template on freezer paper WITHOUT  a seam allowance. Iron to the wrong side of the fabric and trace with an ultra fine pigma pen. Cut out with s seam allowance. Sew together in pairs, stitching on the drawn line. Sew the pairs together to create two halves and then sew the halves together. Easy, peasy and you can do it while watching tv. Press and applique to the background.

Happy Quilting,
