You have found the home of  The Splendid Sampler™ project organized and run by good friends Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.

For Splendid Sampler Book #2 we are giving you, as a gift, 20 blocks for free from our Splendid Sampler 2 book while we wait for the book to be ready. Then we will sew the remaining 80 from our book. Our book has a total of 100 quilt blocks, all 6” finished.

Come to the website each week to download

FAQ
Starting June 14, 2018, for Splendid Sampler 2 ever Thursday, you’ll be assigned a block to make here at our website. See the Designer page for those already assigned 
  • How Much Fabric should I buy? 

*********************************************

FAQ – Embellished blocks
If you happened to find us via a block at Pinterest, you might have seen one embellished with a snowman or geese. Maybe with such a unique coloration that it doesn’t look like the base Splendid Sampler block.. but it is!
  • With over 30,000 very creative quilt makers sewing along with us, many have added their own unique embellishments that are not part of our project. Nor are they a pattern. So just enjoy the creativity!   The quiltmakers above are
  • Top row – Sandra G,  Sue M, Maudy E,  Sylvia S.
  • Bottom row – Debra M,  Patsy B, Dena B, x, Kathy B.

Settings

Inside both books there are examples of lay-outs and settings. Jane has created a simple pattern for 100 blocks using the traditional shadow box setting.

What is in the book?
  • All 100 official blocks & the story from the designer
  • full directions to make the blocks, full size diagrams
  • various tips are sprinkled through the book
  • Layouts for several quilts using various numbers of blocks in each quilt. 
What is NOT in the book?
  • NO bonus blocks – those will stay here at our website… and are listed at the end of the page
  • NO tips given by other designers as those are their own personal project. If you are following a particular designer and their tips,  you need to save those.
  • NO quilter blocks or quilter finished quilts.  The book was delivered at the beginning of the project before anyone else made blocks, it’s FULL to the brim
