Splendid Sampler 2 ++ My Flock Block

Are you sewing along with the free portion of the Splendid Sampler 2?  Each week (June 14th - Nov 1st) a free block pattern is being posted on the Splendid Sampler website.

This week's block is by Brenda Ratliff and is called My Flock.  I really like the tiny flying geese in this design (they finish at 1½" x 3").  I do not usually make 6" blocks so this quilt along has been fun for me.

For my blocks I am planning on using some of my Bonnie and Camille fabrics from a bunch of collections, focusing on the pink, red, aqua, and orange prints.

This block joins the other two I have already made.  I am picking and choosing blocks and hope to make between 16 and 25 total for my sampler.

Here’s the full schedule:
  • June 14 – Sew Along starts with one block a week on Thursdays 
  • Nov 1 – the 20th block is given out 
  • Dec 6 – we start sewing from the book with blocks weekly. 
  • May 2 is the planned end date. So it’s a full year of fun! 
You can pre-order your copy of The Splendid Sampler 2 or get your copy of the original Splendid Sampler right now (affiliate links).


  1. The 6" blocks are definitely a change of size for me, too, and I am enjoying piecing them. I'm excited to see your grouping grow!

  2. Very precise piecing, nice job!

  3. A very fun block. I like your color choices for the quilt along.

  4. 1-1/2 x 3”? I love working small, but tiny flying geese aren’t easy! Nice job, fun block!


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