The Splendid Sampler

It’s no secret that I love a sampler quilt, in fact I think I may be a tiny bit addicted to little blocks that let me play with fabric in small chunks of time. If you also love projects that keep changing and surprise you with different techniques and fabric possibilities you may want to join The Splendid Sampler Sew Along.


This brilliant year long project is the brain child of two very talented designers, Jane Davidson and Pat Sloan. They’ve collaborated with over 80 exciting designers to bring you one hundred 6″ patterns over the course of a year. Patterns will be released every three or four days, allowing for holidays.

There’s a bunch of other big names in this collaboration, a handful of Aussies I love like Cat Demack, Jen Kingwell and Siobhan Rogers. Some long time favourite international designers like Kerry Green, Latifah Saafir and Victoria Findlay Wolfe. Actually, choosing just three to mention was hard, you need to check out the whole list!

And then there’s me. Hahaha, I’m certainly feeling like I’m punching above my weight with this and I’m intending to sew along and learn new stuff from all the other designers. And I’ll have to put more effort into this blogging caper… but it’s more likely that you’ll find me over in The Splendid Sampler Facebook Group (Currently 8,000+ members) or posting my progress on Instagram. Check out #TheSplendidSampler hashtag to see what everyone else is doing.

It all kicks off this Valentines Day (14th February) perfect to demonstrate the huge love that Pat & Jane have poured into this adventure. So what are you waiting for? Sign up is free over HERE!
