The Splendid Sampler II, Block 6: Rose and Dot

Yesterday, we started Week 6 of the Splendid Sampler 2 Block-of-the-Week quilt along.

Last week, we introduced you to the Week 5 block designed by Susan Ache, called Point Taken. Here's my version of Susan's block.

This week, we meet designer Lori Kennedy of The Inbox Jaunt. Lori's block is called: Rose and DotIt's such a sweet block and I love its simplicity because it allows you to show off prints using larger pieces of fabric.

This block was so much fun to plan and make. Here is my version of Rose and Dot:

As I did with Clamshells and Balance, I used Helen Stubbings' wonderfully easy technique using her Hugs 'n Kisses Applique Paper to make the leaves and 2-piece flower head.

The Splendid Sampler 2 book will be available October 2018. It is currently available for pre-sale so order your copy, now!
