Splendid Sampler 2 – Block #1 from Alex Veronelli

June 14, 2018

It’s the kickoff day for the Splendid Sampler 2!  The first featured block is by Alex Veronelli of Aurifil thread fame. And of course I added some of my favorite Aurifil threads to my photo for you. I have been using these Italian threads now for 8 years! See the little wooden spool in the photo? That is the new 80 weight thread! It’s sooo thin! You can use it in your sewing machine (I still used the 50 weight for this block) but I’m excited to try using the thinner weight for some hand stitching on some of these blocks.

To download today’s free block pattern head to The Spendid Sampler website:

I’m sure this block could have gone together faster if I wasn’t so particular about colors. It was still quick and I used ALL scraps! You know I love a good scrap quilt! I’m hoping these blocks help me use up my massive scrap collection.

After stitching this block I added a line of stay stitching around the edges. It’s just a straight line stitch around the edge of the entire block. With this many seams and some being on the bias it will help my block hold it’s shape until it gets sewn up into a quilt!

Don’t forget to link up your finished block on the Splendid Sampler website!

I was given a good customer service. The best thing about working with them is their individual approach to every order and that they stay in touch with you throughout the process of writing. You might be sceptical when asking someone to write an essay for you for the first time, so was I, but having used this service I can recommend to everyone. It was extremely helpful especially at the point in semester when university gets really busy.
