Splendid Sampler II – Betty’s Bloom

Today, the Splendid Sampler II Sew Along block design is by Carl Hentsch (from 3 Dog Design Company), and the block is called Betty’s Bloom. You can find the pattern and details about the inspiration behind block today on The Splendid Sampler website.

As I have mentioned before, I am not sewing up every block during the free quilt along event or from the book, but as my collection is growing, I have found that I am thinking about making more.

I am also learning a lot about 6-inch finished blocks. They are much smaller than what I normally work with… well aside from the mini mini quilts that I piece.

  1. 6″ blocks are small. The 8″ one I did had finished 1″ squares so I feel your pain. They are looking fab!

  2. Each block is cute. But together, Yvonne, they make quite an impact!

    This block is awesome!

  6. Tell me about the 6” blocks…though they are tons of fun. 150 last year and there’ll be 200 this year when all’s said and done! Interesting I’m working on the September challenge and making Cindy‘s latest quilt which has a section extremely similar to this! Love as always the colours you’ve put together.

    You’ve got a great set of blocks from the quilt along. That last one looks very tricky, but it certainly turned out beautifully!

  9. Cindy Pieters says:

    Love the new block! All your blocks look stunning together.

  10. That is a dynamic block! All of them together with your colorway is smashing!
