Point Taken - Splendid Sampler II Block

Splendid Sampler II – Point Taken

I am leisurely sewing along with the Splendid Sampler II Sew Along, which started on June 14th with the Quilt Market Block. The sew-along is giving away a variety of 20 of the Splendid Sampler II blocks to download weekly and make. This week, the block design is by Susan Ache (@yardgrl60 on Instagram) and her block is called Point Taken. You can find the pattern and details about the inspiration behind block today on the The Splendid Sampler website.

I really love my fabric grouping so far, and I am already looking forward to sewing more blocks and seeing how they come together as a grouping.

    I like the way that grey fabric with the slight grid, plays so well together with the blue fabrics with the circular motifs and the spiky gold fabric in the middle. I am currently doing GnomeAngel’s 100 days 100 blocks and am finding that working with the small blocks and small pieces is so interesting with respect to how the fabric colours and motifs work together. These lovely Splendid blocks are also on my list.

  2. Such a great fabric pairing, indeed! Look forward to following your progress 🙂

    I think the yellow center really makes this block pop. Good job.

    Hello Yvonne; I think that the fabrics you chose for this block are fabulous. I was also thinking that this block would be a fun quilt to make by bringing each of your fabrics to the main fabric and rotating them throughout. It is also a block that I do not believe I have ever seen before. So, I also like its uniqueness. You did a fabulous job in choosing your fabrics for the Splendid Sampler 2. Thank you for sharing with us and have a fantastic day!

  5. Great colors! I have been bad at making these blocks, my goal was to make one per month so I need to get going on one for July 🙂

    Perfect fabrics, and I like your photo a lot too.

  13. I like this block! I think I should add it to the list for my stalled splendid sampler.

  14. The point taken is such a great block. Your fabric choices are working out quite well. Now, I must go look and see whether there is a ‘casual sewalong’ in my future!

    Great fabric choices and all your stitching is so precise. Beautiful block ( and one you don’t have to worry about cutting off the points when it’s sewn to others!)

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
