A Very Splendid Sequel Indeed!

Jane and I had so much fun with all the designers in The Splendid Sampler that we decided to ask another 80 designers to join us for a 2nd Splendid Sampler book and sew along!

Do you want to know more? I thought so!

Jane and I decided to run this sew along in a similar way, but not exactly the same because it’s more fun to do things a little different!

We decided to write the book BEFORE we announced it to you, so the book is being finalized and sent off to be printed. That makes it a lot easier for the entire team then doing double work.

Our project works well with the first book. We have 100 blocks that finish at 6″ square. We have several all-new layouts in this book (no layout repeats) and the 80 designers have come in with a whole NEW collection of unique blocks.

This is UNLIKE any regular sampler, it’s WAY more fun to let a designer have the freedom to create from their hearts a block for you. We love our design friends for joining us!

The Plan (but not the WHOLE plan..we are holding back some surprises… wink!)

  • We don’t want to wait until the book ships in mid-October to start the fun, so we are going to give away 20 FREE Blocks from our book to kick start the sew along!  We are SO excited!
  • Between NOW and June 14 we have some fun things planned
  • June 14 – Sew Along STARTS  with One block a week on Thursday
  • Nov 1 – the 20th block is given out
  • Dec 6 We start sewing from the book with blocks announced on Thursdays.
  • May 2 is the planned end date. So it’s a full year of fun!


  • Blocks Size =   6″ FINISHED size, just like the first book,  so they can be combined.
  • June 14 – Nov 1 We will sew blocks that we give for FREE from the book.
  • Dec 6 – we start sewing blocks from the book, so you will need the book to continue the fun that we have planned!

The fun will be meeting our 80 design friends, creating unique blocks, learning new things, hearing our friends’ stories, and .. of course.. guessing what block will be NEXT!
