Ta Da!

I am one happy little Vegemite....my version of Splendid Sampler is finished!!!
I managed 97 blocks which included quite a few bonus blocks....I am happy I hung in for most of the blocks......especially considering my aversion to machine sewing!
Even happier that I have a completed quilt. I do love the blocks around the centre block and of course my favourite French General fabrics. You would thing my scraps would have decreased but the  bin seems just as full!
I  can at least say that I did Block 1...

and Block 100...
There were just a couple missing in the middle lol!
Huge thanks to Pat Sloan, Jane Davidson and all the other designers  for all their hard work and sharing their creativity with us  throughout the year.
So now back to my other projects.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. Wow your Splendid Sampler looks beautiful all the fabrics you love so much. Fabric is a mystery,I believe it has a secret life, it multiplies when we are not looking!
