For those of you taking part in The Splendid Sampler project, how are you getting on? I'm dipping in and out of the blocks as time allows. I loved Jen Kingwell's Happy Happy block. I used Perfect Circles and the appliqué technique that Charise covered in detail here:
Those tiny circles took a while but I do like the end effect. I ended up with two versions of the Simple Simon block (designed by Celine Perkins) as I was't totally sure of my choices. I'm still not sure I got it quite how I wanted but I guess they'll both end up in the final quilt:
I am enjoying the range of blocks from straightforward rotary piecing, through to appliqué and embroidery. It's good to mix it up a bit and I always like the chance to challenge myself- although I felt at home foundation paper piecing a 6 inch block with Natalia Bonner's Focal Point design.
If you feel you've missed anything, Pat and Jane have a very useful catch-up post with lots of handy links. Which techniques are you enjoying so far?
