The Splendid Sampler™: Block 30


Block n.30 for The Splendid Sampler is calledSimple Surprises, by Amy Ellis. After all the paper-piecing involved in the last two blocks (and in my case, the paper-piecing involved in Cotton&Color BoM pieced also this week, and not yet entirely finished), this simple, quick pieced block was to be thanked for. I really like it and it would make for a terrific quilt on its own.

This pattern also gives room for playing with fussy-cuts and embroidery; lots of variations and the pattern are here.

  1. Hi Ariadna
    your blocks are all sooo wonderful. Really love the modern touch those great fabrics add and i can imagine, that this block would make a lovely quilt!

    • Thanks Martina! I really like how this Sampler is going, and these fabrics are really fun to work with. And my list of side projects from this sampler is growing and growing… so much to choose from!


    • Hello Christine! This fabric is absolutely gorgeous, I’m sorry the photos don’t make it justice. And thank you for wishing me luck… I’ve still to start working on it: I’m not sure what thread to use (I’m trying to avoid Mouliné), and I want to try to use the Pigma pens… which first I need to purchase. But I’m really looking forward to it, some new stitches to learn on this one!
