Splendid Sampler II – Adventure Abounds, Creative Harmony, and Metropolis

This week I couldn’t help myself and chose to piece 3 of the 4 revealed blocks on The Splendid Sampler website today.

Adventure Abounds, designed by Kitty Wilkin (@nightquilter) was a block that I really wanted to make after seeing her Summer Adventure Quilt come together over summer hikes and other outings with her family. I wasn’t sure how the block would work with my prints, but my tree is in beautiful fall splendor and my ocean waves are reflecting the heavens that can be found beating in my heart, too!

The way Gundrun @gedesignsgudrun talks about fully taking care of herself in her description of her Splendid Sampler 2 block, Creative Harmony, resonates deeply with me, so I dove right in to make this fun block, too.

I also chose to piece Susan @suzguzdesigns‘s block Metropolis this week. I was hoping for a night and day vibe for the buildings rotating around the central square.

Be sure to visit The Splendid Sampler website to see the 4th block revealed today. And if you are sewing along, don’t forget to link up (on The Splendid Sampler site) your pieced version of any of the 4 blocks from today’s reveal to be entered to win a prize.
