We are entering the final weeks for the Splendid Sampler 2 quilt along, and I am still just as excited to piece a block or two each week. I definitely chose the right fabrics to keep my interest piqued through this sew along.
The first block I chose for this week is Radio Silence by Anne Marie Chany (@annemarie.chany). With silence in the name of the block, I purposefully limited my color palette to be a bit more quiet and stuck with my navy, light blue, and Kona Cotton in Snow to let the piecing do the talking.
Happy Days, by Chelsi Stratton (@chelsistratton), is such a fun, playful design that I had to piece it this week as well. Having already committed to a softer palette for the first block, it made sense to continue that trend here as well. I too my time cutting and placing motifs for the border stripes around the block and love how they frame it.
Be sure to visit The Splendid Sampler website to see the other 2 blocks 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.

I love the color choices for radio silence. I did think you were taking a hiatus when I first saw that in the title! These blocks are terrific and the happy days one has so many possibilities.
Love the tones in this quiet block! Yup, you did good on these fabrics, just so you. 🙂
Beautiful blocks, but I especially love Radio Silence. I wonder what the origins of the block were, and if I can find it in my Barbara Brachman? Well done!
It is fun to see differences and similarities between the two.
Your fabrics have kept my interest too and I shall miss them when you finish this project. I especially like how you can change the combinations to produce a quieter mood, as you have done here.
Radio silence sings to me, great blocks Yvonne.
I really love the placement of the planets on the silence block. These are all going to look amazing together!!
