Hi Diane! Thank you so much! Adri is loving all the kind comments she is receiving! So happy you like our fabric choice. The jewel tone colors in this collection makes us all giddy when we sew with it. Gotta love fabrics that make you happy every time you sew with it! Are you sewing along with the community sampler too?

Thanks Judy! 😍 It's the best feeling when all your seams line up and your block turns out better then you excepted. We are totally in love with Splendid Fusion fabrics.

Hi Rosemary! I was so impressed with Adri. For some one who hasn't touched a sewing machine since she was 11 she did an amazing job. She was kinda hard on herself for no reason. She was so precise and held her breath when she sewed but once she completed the block she felt a sigh of relief. No better feeling then accomplishing something that's outside your comfort zone. So happy you love the block! Have a great day! :)

Thanks Carol! The girls and I are obsessed with the colors in the Splendid Fabric Collection. All the prints in this collection go together so nicely. Are you following along with the Community Sampler Sew Along? We are having so much fun. Sew Along's are a great way to meet fellow makers. :)

Hi Rosemary, Thank you so much! I am sure your blocks will come out great! I love that you are making two of each block. Turning your second blocks into table runners is such a good idea! I would love to see your blocks. It's so inspiring to see how other people choose their fabrics and the colors they choose. Happy Sewing 😍
