It's Thursday So It Must Be Splendid

Hello All! Last week was a break and there wasn't a block released for Splendid Sampler 2. This week we have a pieced block titled Tulip in Bloom by Nadra Ridgeway. It was a less than pleasant task making this block. I am no fan of stitch n flip. I am not a fan of cutting units way too big and then cutting them down and I am not a fan of waste. This block is composed of stitch n flip, make it big and cut it down, and waste. We all have our likes and dislikes and I am sure that when my applique block is released there will piecers who don't care for it so I will keep my grumbling to myself. The block looks a little modern for my tastes on it's own but when thrown into the mix of blocks it blends right in.
Again, the cool thing about doing a project like this is it gets you out of your wheelhouse and pushes you to try new things which is always a win. I am grateful to be a part of the design team for this project.  You can get your block and learn more about Nadra at
Fall is just around the corner and I am getting excited about decorating the house. I have been sharing fall themed quilts on my Instagram and I am amazed at how many fall themed quilts and projects I have! I am working on some new fall themed punch needle designs right now and am expecting a delivery from Moda today for some super cute Halloween fabric that I will be listing on the website so keep tuned for that. Until next week...
Happy Stitching,



  1. Honest opinions count! I love your fabric choices.

  2. Would you share the information on the off white script background fabric you are using? I love the look!

    1. The fabric is an older line called Atelier from 3 Sisters/Moda. I saved back some yardage last year to use to make something for me.

  3. Good for you! I'm with you though, give me applique any day. Can't wait to see what you come up with when it is your turn.
