Splendid Sampler 2 – Block 13 from Focus On Quilts

This week’s designer is Carl Hentsch – his block is Betty’s Bloom – he said he named it after his oldest dog who shares time with him on the sofa while he hand pieces!  Check out his blog.

Here is my version:

Betty’s Bloom

Splendid Sampler 2 – Free as a Bird from Focus On Quilts

Here is my block for Splendid Sampler 2.  I enjoy sewing with friends, travelling around the world teaching and meeting new quilters.  I named my block “Free as a Bird” because my quilting career has set me free – travelling to places that I never thought I’d visit.  I only started travelling in the last five years and I’ve met many wonderful quilters and made many great new friends along the way. To download a free pattern for this block go to Splendid Sampler 2.

Milk and Cookie - Week 2 Splendid Sampler from Lilabelle Lane

Welcome to week two of the Splendid Sampler Sew Along.

This weeks block is by Rebecca Bryan and is called.

Milk and Cookies

Do I love milk and cookies? No! You an take the  milk and I will take the cookies! 
 Just like my dessert, in my quilts I love simple pleasures like repeating shapes 
and secondary patterns. They go hand in hand, kind of like milk and cookies. 
Basic, but always scrumptious and satisfying. - Rebecca


Excuse my wobbly edges. I didn't use any appliqué paper or alike to keep the edges nice and curved and appliqué of circles ...
