#5 Splendid Sampler

Here is #5 of the Splendid Sampler QAL.  It's called Simple Simon and was designed by Celine Perkins.
This was a lovely block to piece.  I managed to cut accurately, sew perfect scant 1/4" seams and it needed no trimming apart from a couple of wispy bits.

If you have read my previous posts on The Splendid Sampler you may be wondering where #4 is.  Well, I didn't do it.  It didn't really do anything for me and so I'm missing it out, for now.  I may go back and look at it again at a later date.  I have seen some super interpretations of it on the QAL's  Facebook page but it doesn't seem to fit in with what I want my finished item to be.  Maybe I'd like it better as a stand alone 12" block in a frame.  I'll think on it. 


  1. Lovely block pieced from some French General fabrics. Thanks for sharing.

  2. great block and fabric choice just right. Like you have not done 4 but need to master applique first! Will do 5 today with luck
