Splendid Sampler One Year Anniversary Blog Hop & Giveaway

Today is the ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of The Splendid Sampler– WOW! That’s hard to believe! I’m doing a Giveaway to celebrate…. keep reading…

One year ago today, the first block for The Splendid Sampler was released. It was February 14, 2016 that this perfectly themed block was released:

I designed 2 blocks for The Splendid Sampler, a bonus block called Summer Flip Floppin’:

and a block called Little Things:

I showed you how to make a mug rug with this block in this blog post.

Since today is Valentine’s Day, I thought it would be fun to play with making this block into a Valentine’s Day block and mug rug- so cute! Just use pink and red fabrics, and do a simple heart applique instead of the tea cup:

If you make 4 of the blocks (6″ each), you will end up with a 12″ block like this:

The Little Things block will appear in the soon-to-be-released Splendid Sampler book.

***Please note that in a short time, the block patterns will NO LONGER be available for free on The Splendid Sampler website. Get all the details here.

To celebrate this One Year Milestone, there is a blog hop and giveaways! I am giving away a quilt-related mystery novel and a box of fabric remnants! My daughter is between jobs for a couple of weeks, so I’ve had her here cleaning out the fabric stash and studio. I threw a bunch of stuff into a box- these are remnants and strike-off’s from 2 of my fabric lines from a few years ago. (“Strike-offs” are “test” fabrics which come to us from the mill when we are playing with the colors to get them just right.)

This giveaway is now closed. The winner is:

  • Posted February 14, 2017 at 12:48 pm | Permalink

    I enjoyed making Simple surprises, I think the surprise was that is was so simple and yet quite dramatic. I can see a whole quilt in this design(in bigger blocks though) 8-)

    My favorite technique is to take my time and try new things and the SS was just the right project to do that. I am more confident now to choose fabrics, color, value, a little applique, and paper piecing projects. I also love interacting with all the quilters from around the world…a rich and enjoyable journey. Thanks Jacquelynne for the giveaway and for your two precious block designs. Sew adorable!

Inspiration came from so many avenues and challenges were accepted many times over! I’ve learned a lot in my skills and enjoyed trying new methods and techniques, with applique being one of my favorite sewing techniques, I was in heaven when those blocks were released. I must confess, most of the blocks I have finished are the applique blocks! HEHEEHhhe! ~ quiltlovefordomesticfelicity(at)gmail(dot)com

    This has been a journey for me!! It started out fast and then slowed down somewhere near the middle….I am still working on this and I have loved every minute of it. The English Paper Piecing was new for me…and quite a challenge for my mildly arthritic fingers. I was also reintroduced to foundation paper piecing, and I loved it as much as I remembered. The thing that really was fun, though, was returning to embroidery!! My mother taught me to embroider when I was a little girl….probably about 7-8 years old. It was so fun doing the blocks as they brought back precious memories for me. Sadly, I lost my Mom in September two days before what would have been her 92nd birthday. So, now I am in catch-up mode….and enjoying every minute!! Thanks for this wonderful experience!! Its been a hoot!! :) <3 fncsteach@msn.com

    My favorite thing about quilting is choosing the fabrics for each block and seeing how the block looks made in different colorways. Some blocks are great to repeat and use for an entire quilt. For the SS I find that some of the embroidered blocks seem too fancy to go with more whimsical blocks, so I will make 2 separate quilts.Fun!

    I would so very much like to win this. I first learned to sew as a little girl when my grandmother sat me down at her sewing machine and taught me. A semester of sewing in Home Ec (which is what they called it back in the day) renewed my interest in sewing back in the late 60’s, and I made all my clothing until the late 70’s. And then came the very long drought, where for over 35 years, I had no time and no place to sew. And now, retired, I am again sewing and have taken up quilting. Thanks to things I have learned by following your blogs, I have fallen in love with applique, advanced to intermediate patterns and am rediscovering embroidery. Winning this would mean a lot to me. Thank you for the opportunity.

Enjoy the ride!!
    I started hand sewing my blocks, loved it and have made several complete quilts that way, then I started appliqué,live, and now I’m working on machine piecing, the quilting will come later. Paper piecing I have yet to master but love ❤️ what I have tried!

    Piecing takes great concentration and focus and is perfect for times I want to think of nothing but fabric and stitches.

    Appliqué makes beautiful come to life quick… I think this is my favor. Yes, appliqué.

    I don’t know that I have a favorite. Incorporating different techniques to finish a creative – one of a kind piece, runs through my blood. I often take one “pattern/method” and claim a ‘ so.. what if I…’ style to it. Mixed media or using Reverse Applique vs. Applique are my go to’s when I want a brake from traditional piecing.

My Mom and I both did the Hand Quilting on it.. and I made a Baby quilt with 9 patch blocks of Gingham and unbleached Muslin which lasted through all 4 children of a Girl I went to school with.. I do have fabric and Books I have collected not just need some time….

I am trying all techniques right now and soon to try these because I can’t seem to make a mug rug aka mini quilt. I can’t cut pretty fabric that small. How do you do it?

    My favorite is piecing especially with scraps. I’ve always told people if I was a Doctor I would have to be a surgeon because I love cutting things up and putting things together differently.

    As a teenager, I learned x-stitch embroidery. I’m now 69 and have learned so many things, but I think my favorite is paper piecing. I love all those crisp points. I also love, love, love wool embroidery. There just isn’t time to do it all. Darn!!

    New to the quilting scene and haven’t yet decided what technique is my favorite. I love the way paper piecing produces such sharp points but I’m not yet comfortable with it. Have so many projects begun in my head that it will be wonderful to complete a few! Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. :-)

I have completed several embroidery projects this winter while watching TV at night.
