The Splendid Sampler: Block 23

While I was visiting my daughter at the weekend another block was published for The Splendid Sampler.  Block 23 was designed by Kari Carr and is called 'Hand in Hand'.  



I really enjoyed making this block as it uses a dimensional technique of folding a piece of fabric into a seam which I have never used before.  I wasn't sure if I would get it to work very well but, it was easier than it looked and, it is always fun to learn a new technique!



So, I have added another finished block to my Splendid Sampler folder and, I have just downloaded the pattern for the next block ready to get stitching.....
