The Splendid Sampler Block 13

I am just getting caught up with blocks for The Splendid Sampler with Block 13 Scrap Stars by Cory Yoder, designer from Coriander Quilts .  This week I am taken with the color green!

The block I made included Amy Butler, Moda, Dear Stella, Tula Pink and Denyse Schmidt fabrics and I pieced using Aurifil 50wt thread. The Clearly Perfect Angles mat from New Leaf Stitches was a massive help for me with this block!


I ordered new embroidery needles to make the block 12.  Mine were not being finger friendly so I asked for suggestions to make hand work easier.  Do you have a favorite embroidery needle? 


You can join The Splendid Sampler at anytime!  The blocks are available for you to make at your pace!  There is a very active and fun Facebook group that you can join to share your blocks for a real online sew along experience! Looking forward to seeing your creations!

I am enjoying being part of The Splendid Sampler. I'm going on holiday for 2 weeks ao will have some catching up to do when I get back but I am taking 4 blocks which either need the embroidery finishing or need applique stitched down. I tend to use whatever needle is to hand in what feels like the right size. What size do you use?

love the block was surprised that it went together quite well for me as it looked complicated

I had the reverse reaction. I read the instructions about 6 times and said to myself, " I've done this all before. No problem!" Every problem was a stupid problem on my part. I put the wrong color on the wrong side, cut the wrong size of something, etc... The designer did a great job, I'm the one that managed to make my own problems!
