More Completed Splendid Sampler Blocks

 I've been trying to catch up with my TSS Blocks. Ambitious I know when I'm 50 behind, :)  however, slowly the saying goes. How I'm enjoying this creative journey, seeing the creative interpretations of each block from the other members, along with their help & very kind comments. Here are my latest completions.
This pattern was for a squirrel. Being a proud Australian, I decided to feature a Koala holding a pink gum blossom instead of the squirrel.
This is an embroidered block, one of the many embroidery blocks I've yet to complete.

This one is composed of selvage edges, such a great idea & I love being able to use the many coloured fabrics I've chosen for this project.

I'm adding these while we are having loads of after shocks from yesterday's earthquake. Can you tell I'm not concentrating well?  a 5.8 just now.   :(:(    I've forgotten to edit the photos just trying t get everything uploaded for now.  Another 5.7 Enjoy this sparkly cup cake.

I do hope the designer of this preservatives block forgives me for using this fabric. I have had it in my fabric stash for 20 + years, instead of the pieced block that was offered.. I just couldn't resit this one with the label showing "Joan's".... I can see that jar needs to be leveled, perhaps the earthquakes  are influencing my placement.

 I imagined with this block, that I might start to do the blocks as they arrive,. Well, it is a plan at any rate. :)  Enjoy.


  1. Checking in on your quilt progress. They all look great, but I think my favorite is the one with the selvage pieces. It's so unique and colorful.

    1. Thank you Honeybee for your kind comment. Yes I agree, the selvage one is different & colourful. I'm fond of so many of the blocks. I'm also very grateful for the project from Pat Sloan & Jane Shalala Davidson the organizers of this wonderful project. They have presented us with block patterns from all the other, contributing, generous, designers. I so enjoy looking forward to each pattern release day.
