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 www.thesplendidsampler.com
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...
