The fifth block for The Splendid Sampler Quilt was released on Sunday..and I actually managed to stitch it on Sunday 🙂 It’s called Simple Simon and it was designed by Celine Perkins.
To be fair, it is well named being based on a fairly simple nine-patch block. It was nice to have a pretty straight forward block after the teeny tiny pieces we’ve been sewing with!
I fussy-cut the main squares with flowers on, with hindsight I should have fussy-cut the narrow strips too but at the time they almost seemed to narrow to be noticeable. I even managed to keep the back fairly neat!
Five blocks complete now out of 100, a few ladies on facebook have started sewing the sashings in already, I must admit I’m tempted to join them as the thought of stitching a hundred blocks together at once does not fill me with joy! I’ll see how time goes over the next week.
