The Splendid Sampler: Simple Simon

The sew along continues this week with The Splendid Sampler block #5, Simple Simon, designed by Celine Perkins of Perkins Dry Goods.  I like the way she turned a basic nine patch block into something new & interesting with a few cuts & some sashing.

I have been using the tropical colorway from Lavish by Art Gallery Fabrics, but switched things up this week by pulling out prints in jewel tones.  The crisp lines of this design drew me in and I also enjoyed fussy cutting the 2.5 inch squares to showcase the Bejeweled Seal Ink print.
The other prints used in this block are Petal Picking Dense and Sunprint Orchid

I’m enjoying seeing new blocks each week with the Splendid Sampler sew along.  I am also glad that there’s no pressure to keep up with everyone else.  Have you joined in the fun yet?  We’d love to see your blocks!  See what we’ve been stitching on Facebook and Instagram
