The Splendid Sampler II book preview

The Splendid Sampler 2: Another 100 Blocks from a Community of Quilters book by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson

Have you heard? The Splendid Sampler II: Another 100 Blocks from a Community of Quilters by Pat Sloan and Jan Davidson will be released this fall. I’m excited and honored to announce that I am one of the 80 designers from around the world to have contributed a block to the book. I have to keep my block a secret for a bit longer, but in the meantime there is an online sew along (with 20 free blocks from the new book) that you can download and make between now and November!

The first block, entitled Quilt Market, was designed by Alex Veronelli from Aurifil. It is available now. You can read about the inspiration behind the block and download the pattern as a PDF.

I’m going to be sewing along too and am going to use all solids from my scrap collection and stash. All of the blocks trim down to 6.5″ square so they sew up quickly. Here is my Quilt Market block:
"Quilt Market" block. Designed by Alex Veronelli of Aurifil for the Splendid Sampler 2 book. Quilt block made by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill, Whole Circle Studio pieced with solids from her fabric stash.

  1. I am so excited you have a block in the Splendid Sampler 2 book. Hmmm, will yours be one we see before the book comes out? It would be nice to see it before October. Your Quilt Market block is very pretty.

    1. Hi Nancy, I’m still not allowed to ruin the surprise if my block will be released prior to the book coming out or not. As soon as I can say, I will share! Thanks so much!
