As a quilter and quilt designer, I am drawn to quilt books featuring unusual quilt blocks. The Splendid Sampler by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson has loads of interesting quilt blocks and a great back story. For one year, over 23,000 quilters from around the globe participated in the Splendid Sampler Quilt-Along on Facebook, sharing quilt blocks, stories, and camaraderie.The goal was to bring the whole world together to quilt and share the joys of a quilting life. The result was The Splendid Sampler with its one hundred blocks from eighty-three designers from around the world. There are blocks featuring piecing, appliqué, paper-piecing, and embroidery. Instructions are given, often with alternate colorways, for each block. Full-size patterns are provided as well as a gallery of sampler quilts featuring blocks made by the members – the Splendids. There are online resources for bonus blocks, tutorials, and settings for sampler quilts. I am eager to add The Splendid Sampler to my quilt library and think other quilters will also enjoy it.
