It’s My Turn for the Splendid Sampler Block

Dear Friends,

It’s my turn to introduce my block for the Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson’s Splendid Sampler tour.  I love designing!  So when Pat and Jane asked me to participate in their Splendid Sampler I quickly accepted their request.

At the time of their request, I had several other design deadlines quickly approaching.  At times, I feel that I am like an acrobat.  You know, the one that tries to see how many plates they can keep spinning at the same time on numerous sticks.  Thus, the name of my block….Whirling in Circles.

But, I am doing the things in my life that I love.   First, spending time with my family.   Then, designing and creating memories for my family and friends with quilts.  I love the community of quilters that I am surrounded with every day.   They spark my creativity and provide encouragement to keep doing what I love to do.



Happy Stitching,


p.s. – I’ve included some additional pictures of my block to show detail, alternate fabrics and my way of pressing the seams.
