My Journey Through The Splendid Sampler
March 18, 2017 International Quilting Day - I finished piecing my top today!
As one of the designers, I sewed along with The Splendid Sampler. I didn't get every block made yet, but there's time to catch up. After all there is a wonderful book being released by Martingale in April. Today is February 14th, 2017 and it's been one year since we all started this journey, so I thought I'd share with you how I've decided to set my blocks:
This is just the beginning, and another round has yet to be added, but you knew it had to be a hexagon right?

A few friends made some blocks for me to show you some alternatives.
My Block is #51
I call this little quilt BEE-ing Happy in my Garden! It uses my block #51 BEE Happy!

While you're here don't forget to have a look at my free on-line quilt-alongs, The New Hexagon - Millefiore Quilt-Along and Blocks on the Go, for Quilts on the Grow. We have amazing Facebook groups for sharing they are: The New Hexagon - Millefiore Quilt-Along Facebook Group and Katja Marek's 'Quilt with Me' Facebook Group.
Both quilt-alongs use blocks from my book The New Hexagon: 52 Blocks to English Paper Piece. It was the #1 selling book for Martingale in 2015. Just released in July is The New Hexagon Perpetual Calendar which will have a new online quilt-along launching in January 2017. December 2016 also brings The New Hexagon Coloring Book, perfect as a companion idea book for the calendar or on it's own.
Here are some of the Blocks that I've completed so far:
