I started with the Modern Country fabric collection, added some black and grey, some other low volume backgrounds. Threw in a little Fibs and Fables. And we'll see where we go from there. I do like to work scrappy, and figure the sashing chosen will pull it all together. And also figure I'm not going to worry about it a lot right now.
My favorite so far are these:
|"Happy Happy' by Jen Kingwell|
|'Lots of Love' by Melissa Corry|
|'Snug as a Bug' by Amy Sinibaldi|
Splendid also issued it's first challenge----post a picture of all seven, your first group, all done, and do it by Sunday, March 13. There will be a drawing, and PRIZES, including patterns, thread and a jelly roll. I didn't even need that challenge, I'm competitive enough just to want to keep up! Some post their blocks with HOURS of the block coming out, gee whiz! Hard to compete with that. Just want to keep up in reasonable time, get one done before the next comes out.
But here are my first seven, completed in a timely manner, and posted together. All done in the spirit of the designer's pattern.
Tomorrow night my guild is hosting PAT SLOAN, so I will assist our program team by setting up a SPLENDID SAMPLER board. So if you are in the area, visitors can come here Pat's lecture and see her trunk show for a guest fee of $10, and please bring your Splendid blocks with you, and we'll put them up on the flannel!! We invite you to join us, Great Lakes Heritage Quilters, meeting somewhere different tomorrow, First United Methodist Church of Troy, 6363 Livernois, Troy, Michigan, 7pm. If you'd like to share any other work, especially Pat Sloan patterns, feel free to bring that too! Hope to see you!
