The Splendid Sampler

The Splendid Sampler group started January of 2016 - goal is 100 6.5 inch blocks.  We receive the instructions for a block on Sunday & Thursday - no idea what the design will be.  There are 85 designers from around the world designing for this group.  There have also been 6 bonus blocks provided.

So are there are over 10,000 people signed up to do this quilt - Facebook and their website are places to upload pictures of completed blocks.

Above is 20% of my quilt so far - 20 of the blocks, not the bonus or additional.

I am using Moda Miniature Gatherings fabric selection.

Hopefully I will finish ...

Zentangle Postcards

I had also signed up for the Zentangle group at
Postmark'd Art.

I used the designs found in a book on sewable
Zentangles.  They were fun to make - although my
free motion still leaves something to be desired.

Crazy Quilt Postcards

Signed up for the postcard exchange again this season at Postmark'd Art.  These are the three postcards I had to make - this theme was Crazy Quilts.

Very glad I only had to make three as they took a lot of work!!  But it was enjoyable work - always wanted to make a crazy quilt - maybe when I have time this will entice me to try one.

Two of these went overseas - one to England & one to Wales.
