Can you believe we’re halfway done with The Splendid Sampler? We’ve made 50 beautiful blocks! That’s more than five months of learning new techniques, meeting new designers, and sharing our projects with others. And I’m having a blast doing it! Seeing all my blocks laid out together brings me so much happiness (and I have to admit, I’m a little proud, too.) I didn’t think I’d be able to keep up with the schedule, but every time a new block comes out, I read the designer’s story and feel so inspired to start sewing. (We were block 16! Did you make ours? See the block + a special project using it here.)
We’re doing a giveaway to celebrate reaching the 50th block! Three lucky readers will win a free pattern from our online store APQShop.com. Comment on this blog by August 6 and tell us how many of The Splendid Sampler blocks you’ve finished. Also include “#giveaway” to be eligible to win.
