My Splendid Sampler BONUS Block! Summer Flip Floppin’

I was talking with my pal Pat Sloan the other day, and we thought that a summer “bonus” block for The Splendid Sampler would be fun! I came up with this design, called Summer Flip Floppin’:


Flip flops are summer couture! Do you own a pair to match every outfit in your summer wardrobe? Stitch up a cute block in celebration of the sunny season and our favorite warm weather footwear!

This block would be GREAT for a summer tote bag! Or, I think this would make an ADORABLE summer quilt, if you made a whole bunch of the blocks in scrappy fabrics or batiks!



Guess what? There’s a contest! Take a photo of your Summer Flip Floppin’ block and you could win some Moda French General fabric!! Get the details AND the free pattern here.


(Do you LOVE French General fabric?? You can find more here.)

By the way, I have been working on some more Splendid Sampler blocks! I’ll be showing them off soon. AND, if you’d like to meet me, along with other Splendid Sampler designers and “Splenderettes,” click here for more information!

    This is just so beautiful for a beach quilt. My daughter just accepted a marriage proposal. They will be getting this quilt from me made up in bright Caribbean florals! They love the beach! Thank you for the inspiration!

      Fabulous! If you want a full size quilt, you may want to increase the size of your blocks, maybe to 8″ or 12″. Just cut your squares larger and increase the size of the appliques accordingly.

    Thanks! I’ve been using a woman’s size 6 and a child’s size 4 flip flop to create these into muffin rugs from some Hawaiian fabric I bought years ago. This way! My flip flop is safely in my cimputer(s)!! Appreciate.
