To be honest I'm NOT caught up - and I don't plan to be!
The Splendid Sampler is a year long (and then some) sew along of 100 blocks orchestrated by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.
I find myself eager to make the patchwork piecing blocks and sometimes the applique ones.
I am making my blocks with fabric gifted to me by my mother-in-law and I am making the blocks to create a quilt to give to her.
I know that she prefers asymmetrical designs and quilts with a place for your eyes to rest. This is influencing my approach to fabric selection and has my mind churning for a way to set traditional blocks in a unique way.
I have 25 blocks done! I think the official number of blocks released is closer to 45, but that's okay. I'm loving the process and the blocks I do make - and isn't that the point :)
