The Splendid Sampler
100 Spectacular Blocks from a Community of Quilters
Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson
Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson started The Splendid Sampler Sew-Along with a shared idea: to bring the whole world together to quilt. And with help from quilters across the globe, that’s exactly what they did. More than 25,000+ quilters from all walks of life joined the sew-along—100 quilt blocks, 80+ designers, and 12 months of sewing fun—and now the much-anticipated companion book is almost here! All 100 block patterns (with close-up photos of each design) are included, along with ideas for setting your blocks. Make a few or make them all! The Facebook group is still going strong—get the book, share your blocks, and experience the joys of quilting with a very special community of quilters.
When we first saw images from the photo shoot for this book, everyone in the Martingale office immediately wanted to switch the colors in their homes to blue and white—and we bet you will too! In this hardcover, coffee-table-style volume, you’ll pore over page after page of breathtaking room settings, all in calming blues and crisp whites. Polly and Laurie invite you to explore their inspiring collections, from quilts and hooked rugs to darling antiques (the heart-shaped tin cookie cutters and timeworn game boards made us gasp with glee!). Spotlighting three different homes featuring Americana, coastal, and classic styles, you’ll discover delightful decorating ideas and loads of tips for creating a two-color look. Whenever you want to be inspired by tranquil beauty—or you want to dream up a new decorating scheme—let this picturesque book whisk you away to a wonderful world of blue and white.
Gather your stockpiles of strips for the 13th book in our “Big Book” series! Use precuts or strips from your stash to create 60 strip-tastic projects in styles ranging from classic beauty to fresh quilts with a modern vibe. Choose from designs by Kim Brackett, Amy Ellis, Kate Henderson, Julie Herman, Kathy Brown, and many more. So many designers, so many strips—sew much fun! And all for just pennies per pattern.
Stitch a salute to the American spirit with the red-white-and-blue projects in Oh Glory! Show your pride in July and throughout the year with patriotic table toppers, wall quilts, throws, and more—or make and give a project to honor and comfort service members and veterans you know. A story about Kathy’s inspiration for the book—her father, a veteran of World War II—will tug at your heartstrings and fill you with gratitude for the men and women who proudly serve our country. Stitch an ode to them, to freedom, and to a celebration of the stars and stripes!
