NEW!!! SPLENDID SAMPLER II
We have worked through 100 blocks and have made several quilts, but there are more 6 ½” blocks to be made. Yes, Pat and Jane are publishing the sequel, Splendid Sampler II. We had so much fun with Splendid Sampler I, we decided to continue. Please feel free to join us on July 7 for Splendid Saturday. You can make blocks from either book I or book II. We will meet on the first Saturday of every month at 10:30 to discuss and plan our block making strategy.
By the way you will be able to get Splendid Sampler II patterns online starting June 14. The book will be published in the fall and we will pick up where we left off after publication.
If you are interested please sign up on our Splendid Saturday List and order your book from us today.
