Splendid Sampler 2: My Flock, and a Garden Club giveaway!


My Flock - Splendid Sampler 2 Block!

I'm very excited that today my pattern for the Splendid Sampler 2 is released! I'm very honored that Pat and Jane asked me to be a part of this collaboration. There are a lot of amazing quilters that are involved in this book! Speaking of the book, it will be released in October but it is available for pre-order now! And of course you can get a head start on some blocks like mine ;)



I wanted to create a block that featured flying geese, they are one of my favorites! There are so many ways to make them and rulers out there to help make them quickly and easily. If you have never tried to make flying geese today is the day to start!  


I made up a second version of the this block in my brand new Garden Club fabric collection for RJR! This is perfectly timed because my new fabrics are shipping to shops right now!


AND I'm also going to give away a Fat Quarter bundle of Garden Club to you as well! Just leave me a comment on this post and I will choose a winner on Monday, August 6, 2018!



Happy sewing friends! Hope you have fun making my block! Thanks for stopping by!
