Since these all finish at 6-inches, the pieces are small, but hey if you like the block, you can always enlarge them to suit the size you prefer. Some are all pieced, some all applique and some are a combination of pieced and appliqued. As with the Bloom Sew Along, I am using all scraps from my scrap bags to make these blocks.
Here are the first 4 Splendid Sampler Quilt Blocks that I made:

|Block 2 close-up|
|Close-up of block 4|
|Block 4 with buttons. I may sew the buttons on this block after I quilt the quilt or whatever I make using this block. I also thought about sewing some trim or sewing a fancy stitch on the vase too. I may do that later if I feel it needs it.|
|Block 4 close-up of flowers with the button on top. I think the buttons may be what this simple block needs to jazz it up a bit.|
