The Splendid Sampler – The Journey Continues and a Celebration Giveaway

Happy Valentine’s Day! Have you been following along with The Splendid Sampler? The 100th and final block was released earlier in the week and to mark this tremendous milestone, there’s a huge giveaway to celebrate!

Splendid Sampler - Scrappy Happy Heart

The New Book

But before I get to the giveaways, there’s some exciting to share. Although the first stage of the quilt along has wrapped up, the journey isn’t over! The Splendid Sampler book releases in April!

Splendid Sampler Book

Click here to pre-order your copy of The Splendid Sampler.

Then in May, authors Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson will embark on phase two – encouraging new Splendid sewists to create one block a week from the book. So it’s never to late to join in – or if you started the quilt along and then set it aside to work on other things, you can re-join the fun!

For my stop, I’m giving away PDF copies of my latest pattern releases: Positive Direction and Stepping Stones.Ā  (If you already own these, you can pick two others from my Craftsy pattern shop.)

To enter, leave a comment letting me know how many Splendid Sampler blocks you’ve made so far! (And yes, it’s okay to say “zero!”) Next Monday at the end of the day, I’ll randomly choose 2 lucky winners – one from the US and one International. I’ll email the winners and will update this blog post with their names on Tuesday.

    Thanks fo much to giving us to chance to win!
    Loved your Scrappy Hearts šŸ™‚
    I made 100 pluse 21 bonus blocks to make 11 x 11 šŸ™‚

  2. Angela Siegert says:

    I have 110 blocks, I made multiples of my favorites and admit a few I didn’t do. I learned so much and have all the patterns for future use, thank you.

  3. Leslie Fitzgerald says:

    I have made 24 blocks, but managed to have one get lost on a trip from NY back to CA. Of course, it was my favorite block of the bunch. I guess that just means I get to make it twice, right?

  4. Tish Leupen says:

    I have made 112 blocks and have them sashed and sewn into rows. So far I have 2 borders on and I am working on a piano key border

  5. Jane says:

    I have completed 89 blocks. The embroidery blocks are taking me longer, so I have hand work to do yet. I am saving block 100 for the last. I might do some bonus blocks but I haven’t done any of those yet.

  6. Terry says:

    I have not started making the blocks yet. As always, life sometimes gets in the way. But as Pat said, this is a journey – not a race, so I will continue and make time as others join in.

  7. Nancy Daly says:

    Hi Christa! I’ve made 115 blocks and I’m trimming them today! Next step-sashing! I’ll be Splendid-ing for a while and still loving it! Joy always and thank you for your heart!

  8. Chris Teague says:

    I have completed 58 blocks as of now and am trying desperately to squeak out an additional 6 to make an 8 x 8 grid. Running out of my coordinated fabric (layer cake).

  9. Renee Brayley says:

    Your heart block was so fun! My favorite kind of paper piecing, without a bunch of section to join up at the end. I made two of your heart blocks so far, in each of my Splendid Sampler color schemes. Total SS blocks (so far) is 186. I am making one small wall quilt for my sewing room, and two twin size quilts for the grandkids to use when they visit.

  10. Julia S. says:

    I have finished 20 blocks with plans to do more at my next retreat. I do have all 100 blocks in a binder with some of the bonus blocks…….

  11. Joanne Paradis says:

    I have made zero but the book is on my Amazon wish list! I love the stepping stones quilt and would love to win the pattern!

  12. Rhonda says:

    Well, zero so far, but am currently working on a quilt which may be a variation of one of the sampler blocks. Thanks for the chance to win!

  13. Judy Tillott says:

    I’m only new to the Splendid Sampler and I’ve only made 2 blocks to date. But I have been following the journey and can’t wait to put all new skills into practise and create something as wonderful as everyone else

  14. dianna eickhorn says:

    I made all 100 blocks and then some bonus blocks and re-do’s. Don’t know how many exactly now, but, over 100. And, I’m so proud of my accomplishment. Thanks to all for this wonderful journey.
