The Splendid Sampler Blocks 70-71

I have a very limited Liberty of London stash in my sewing room.  Most of the pieces are just over 5 in squares although some are bigger but not many.  I have been hoarding  collecting them for years and have only been using small pieces here and there for something very special.  They are the equivalent to the good china and silver only brought out for special occasions.

When I realized how stunning they are with the Modern Backgrounds fabrics by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics, they moved to the top of the list for my blocks for The Splendid Sampler!

In an attempt to catch up with my blocks for The Splendid Sampler, I dove into my Liberty stash and came up with these beauties!

This stunning block is a paper pieced designed by Kerry Green from Very Kerry Berry .  First Stitch is block 71 in The Splendid Sampler Series. You can find the free pdf pattern here.


The next block I made was designed by my sweet friend and one of The Splendid Sampler organizers, Jane Davidson!  

Bows is block 70 and is another paper pieced pattern.  I love the accuracy of paper pieced blocks!  You can make the smallest angles and points perfect without crying tears of frustration! 






If you have not joined in on The Splendid Sampler, there is still time!  There are 100 blocks in total and they are released every Sunday and Thursday.  The blocks are free to download from the website There is a link party with every block for you to show off your Splendid Beauty and a very active Facebook group with so many supportive people, including the designers of The Splendid Sampler!
