What a delight it’s been to see all of the amazing blocks sewn for The Splendid Sampler week after week. It’s hard to believe that we’re already at the halfway point! Block #50, Flights of Fancy by Joanna Figueroa, was released just yesterday and we’ve already seen a flood of beauty as a result;). This magnificent Sew Along has been presented by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson, and we are endlessly grateful. They’ve inspired thousands of quilters, worldwide, to step outside of comfort zones, experiment with new techniques, collaborate and share with new friends, and contribute to something that is both inspiring and educational. We are thrilled to be a part of the Block 50 celebration and couldn’t help but use today’s post as a showcase of blocks. Our last showcase ended with block #36, so we’ll start with #37 and run from there!
Once you’re done ooooh-ing and ahhhh-ing over all of the block beauty, don’t miss your chance to enter-to-win a Large Perfect Box of Colors Collection by Pat Sloan for Aurifil.
