The Splendid Sampler [Half Way]

My Splendid Sampler project has been a little left out of things recently amongst the glut of finishes. But last week I finally pieced the three blocks that I cut ages ago, and then I kept going, with a couple of the earlier blocks which I had been avoiding for no particular reason. I realised two things: it's been a while since I shared an update here, and I had finished 49 blocks - not only is that nearly half way, but it aso means I can lay them out in a pretty 7x7 grid for a photo of progress so far.




As you can see, I miscounted. And it tuns out I have 51 blocks, so not quite the even grid I had planned!

And here are some of the blocks closer up.

 #36 Inchy Hexagon Club
 #31 Blossoming


#64 Rising Star
 #60 Hearts and Flowers

 #63 The Icing on the Cake
Bonus Block: Summer Flip Floppin'
 #28 Stitching Fashion
 #29 Scrappy Happy Heart; #61 Traveller; #66 Happy Thoughts
 #50 Flights of Fancy

#53 Whirling in Circles; #62 Hen and Chicks; #65 Stripe and Flowers


#26 Dreaming of Dresdens


#67 Bobbin Chase
#24 Inspector Sidekick
#48 Whim

As you can see, I've finished quite a few as part of #saturdaynightcraftalong - it's a few hours of uninterrupted sewing, perfect for blocks that take a little more concentration!
