The Splendid Sampler – Block 1 Hearts Aflutter


Today marks the release of the first Splendid Sampler ™ block – Hearts Aflutter by Pat Sloan.

The block pattern can be downloaded here.


I will be making the 100 blocks in my collection of French General fabrics from 2009 – 2015. I have been waiting for a special project and the Splendid Sampler ™ is prefect to show off these gorgeous prints.

Needle turned appliqué is my favourite of all the appliqué techniques. I like the soft, dimensional look it gives a block. Visit the techniques page of The Splendid Sampler  for some links to some great tutorials.


Look out for my block  on 18th February. It might just give you butterflies.
