I’ve been thinking about a ‘simple bonus block’. There are many blocks in our book that are less complex and I’ll be sharing a few bonus ones between now and when the book comes out in the middle of April 2017. In May we’ll start giving you block assignments from the book to sew each week! We can’t WAIT!

The Splendid  Sampler™ was thought up by 2 friends, Jane & I. And now it’s generated  new friendships, and rekindled old friendships.   The Friendship Star is perfect for this!

I now want to make an entire quilt of little 6″ friendship stars to sparkle across the bed!  How about you? Fabric is my Sunday Drive line (available HERE)

How exciting to have one book with all the 100 designer patterns which ships in just a few weeks to you! You won’t need to spend time printing, chewing up paper and ink. No need to lug around & store large folders of patterns. Many of you realize that our downloadable patterns were a gift to you while the book was being compiled.

We now need your help.. If people ask for the blocks… Please tell them the blocks are no longer free, and that our book is coming in just a few weeks and we’ll be sewing blocks from our book. Please respect our project and do NOT send pdfs to others. Those free patterns were a gift from Jane & I to you and were free for for over a year.  We can’t wait for this book, thousands of hours have gone into running this project & creating it. BiG HUGS!
