Splendid Sampler Update - Through Block 15

Participating in this mega-event, I have learned some new skills and brushed up on ones I haven't exercised in a while.  These are blocks #8 through 15.
Really, I did embroider all of this doily but the lightness of the variegated thread in spots makes it look like I left out sections.

Lots of little pieces in this block but I really enjoyed it.

Looking at all fifteen blocks together, I am questioning my plan NOT to have a color plan for this project.

I'm a big fan of randomness, but perhaps a little bit of a end goal in mind would be helpful.  Something to ponder when I am not taking classes and enjoying the show at MQX this week!!

Linking up with Lorna's Let's Bee Social party!


  1. Pretty blocks! It looks like your color plan is blues and oranges, so maybe you made a plan without meaning to. Looks great!

  2. I like randomness too . . . and it makes a much more interesting quilt.
    Great Job & Sew Pretty!

  3. Your blocks are beautiful! I'm saving all the instructions, but haven't made a single block of these days. I think you'll be fine with a no set colour plan. With 100 blocks you'll have some of every colour and then you can maybe pull it all together with sashing or a border or something.

  4. I like how they are all really different from each other - not a typical sampler, either. Very nice.

  5. I'm liking it!! You've got a bunch more blocks to go ~ I think your non-plan will work out in the end :-)


How nice of you to take the time to comment!
