Since I didn't get last week's block posted it's going to be an extra splendid post this week. I was busy with deadlines and preparing for trunk shows and a workshop and totally forgot to add the block to the blog. Last week's block is this adorable little flower called Rose and Dot designed by Lori Kennedy. Sweet and fun to stitch!
Our block for this week is called For the Love and was designed by Sharon Burgess. Sharon made her block using the EPP method. I chose to applique mine. I do so much applique that it was the easiest method for me. I also didn't have supplies for EPP. I really like the way this little block turned out and I don't think that the design is compromised by the applique method.
I am really enjoying making these little blocks. I worried that I would have trouble keeping up with my schedule but it's not been too hard to add in one block a week, even with all I have going on. Because I am a designer I don't generally make anything from a pattern and make only my own "stuff". This has been a great way to expand myself and do things that are out of my box. You can get your block patterns here at www.thesplendidsampler.com and read all about Lori Kennedy and Sharon Burgess.
Out of curiosity- how many of you blog readers are making the sampler? There are quite a lot on Facebook and Instagram. If you are sewing along, drop me a comment so I know you are out there.
Happy Quilting, Dawn
