The 22th block of The Splendid Sampler™, “Goose on the Loose”, is designed by Amy Smart (Diary of a quilter). Amy’s blog has been on my reader since my early steps in quilting, and I have learnt tons through her tutorials… and she works with such an amazing colour palette and fabric combinations! I have one quilt from her book, “Fabulously fast quilts”, in the oven… and some more on my to-do-someday-in-the-future-when-I-have-a-target-recipient-or-proper-fabric list.
I don’t know whether it’s due to my BoM blocks, the paper-piecing already made in this Sampler, the instructions and cutting directions or a combination of all of these, but this block came together smoothly and without major incidents.
And I absolutely love it! This will make for a terrific quilt, won’t it? On Instagram there are some gorgeous fabric combinations (under the tag #Thesplendidsampler), and of course, in the link party, which can be found, with the pattern info, here.
