It is time to catch up with the next blocks I have completed for The Splendid Sampler. This past week there were three blocks as an extra bonus block was released to celebrate Children's Day on 1st June. I will start with the first block that was released since I last posted about the Splendid Sampler which, is block 30.
Block 30 was designed by Amy Ellis and is called 'Simple Surprises'. It is a pretty little pieced block and was a lovely, easy block to put together which was nice. The next block, block 31 was designed by Jenny Reynolds and is called 'Blossoming'. This block is an embroidered block and I really enjoyed stitching it.
Finally, a bonus block was released to celebrate Children's Day. It was designed by the son of one of the Splendid Sampler participants and you can read the story behind how the block came about here. The block is called 'Matthew's Block'.
There were lots of little pieces to put together in this block and my seams aren't terribly straight but, it is a fun block.
Here are all the blocks so far..... now to start on block 32 which was released this morning.... Happy sewing!!
