Splendid Sampler II

Have you heard the news about The Splendid Sampler 2?  A few weeks ago Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson announced a sequel to their successful book and quilt along The Splendid Sampler.

The Splendid Sampler 2 begins shipping in mid-October and is now available for pre-order on Amazon (affiliate link).  The book contains 100 different 6" blocks using a variety of piecing techniques and styles.  

I am some fun news to share about the Splendid Sampler 2 ... I am on the design team and the book contains one of the blocks I designed!

The Splendid Sampler 2 has its own website where you can read all about the book / quilt along and how you can join in. The sew along for the book starts on June 14th with 20 free blocks being launched! There is also an active Facebook group where quilters share their blocks and progress.

Splendid Sampler 2 now available for pre-order on Amazon (affiliate link). 

Here’s the plan:
  • June 14 – Sew Along STARTS with one block a week on Thursday
  • Nov 1 – the 20th block is given out
  • Dec 6 – we start sewing from the book with blocks announced on Thursdays.
  • May 2 is the planned end date. So it’s a full year of fun!
Are you planning on joining in?  I am planning on sewing along, sewing as many as I can.  I am not sure which fabrics to use yet.  


  1. Congratulations to you. I participated in the first Splendid Sampler QAL. So much fun.

  2. Yeah! Ordered the book, fabric selected, cannot wait!

  3. I look forward to seeing what fabrics you select. I'm uncertain if I will sew along or not. The fabric selection seems tricky...

  4. How exciting! Thanks for the heads up on this. I've seen a lot of familiar names on the list, and I was glad to see yours!

  5. So happy you have a block in the sampler! Don't think I'll be sewing, just too many other things on the go. You never know though; it a block grabs my fancy, I might have to make it!

  6. Congrats for having a block in the book. I enjoyed every minute of creating the first Splendid Sampler and am sure this one will be another set of fun blocks!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment!
