The Splendid Sampler™: Block 1


This is the first block for The Splendid Sampler, Hearts Aflutter, by Pat Sloan. I’m not a fan of appliqué, and this was my first needle-turn appliqué ever. In my previous approaches to the technique I used fusible appliqué, which I find easier, although the final results are not as neat as with this one.

So far, so good. I’m pretty happy with the block. Now to block 2…

(the 1st block’s link party is here!)

    • Thank you so much! I really like it of samplers, when they push someone outside its comfort zone. The appliqué was a little bit tricky, so I really appreciate your opinion on the final result!
