Splendid Sampler II – Nancy’s Spool

When I saw that one of the blocks in the Splendid Sampler 2 was by the late Nancy Zieman, I knew that I would piece it no matter what.

Nancy’s Spool – Splendid Sampler II Block

Nancy’s Spool offers a lot of great background space, which was perfect for my large cat-ronaut print. Cats in space with a large spool of thread. Why not?

Be sure to visit The Splendid Sampler website to see the other blocks revealed from the book today.

    Nancy was such a wonderful human being. She taught us so much with kindness, humor and integrity. She was one of those people who made the world a better place and I miss her.
    Your “cat-ronaut” block is a lovely tribute.

    Hello Yvonne, Your block is dynamite! I love the way you made sure that every one of the cats are facing in the right direction and it all just makes this block a special block to honor Nancy! Thank you so much for sharing and have a spectacular day!

    Oh my goodness I love this block. I imagine even space cats would have hours of fun floating around chasing spools of thread, just like Earth cats 🙂
