The Splendid Sampler™: Block 42


Block n. 42 of The Splendid Sampler is calledPencils”, by Jane Davidson (Quilt Jane – Want it, Need it, Quilt), and it’s lovely! Easy, quick to make, and with such a cute result! The pattern is now in my to-do list for the next time I have to sew something for a child… By using bright solids this should look amazing, shouldn’t it?

For the sampler block I decided to use the colour prints in the leads, after considering making one coloured pencil between two grey ones.  I think the block looks more even this way – perhaps a centred colour pencil would have drawn so much attention to it-.

The pattern, information and link party with lots of colourful pencils can be found here.
