The Splendid Sampler Update

I can’t believe Block 80 of The Splendid Sampler was released today! It seems like just yesterday that we all started on this journey together and now we’re nearing the end.

Here are the last six blocks I’ve made! I’m still on track, but with the holidays, it’s getting harder and harder to find time to sew! (I did a marathon sew session this past weekend to get caught up.)

Have you been sewing along? If not, visit to download free block patterns from more than 80 amazing designers! (I designed block #16!)

After the 100th block is released, the patterns won’t be free anymore (and for a great reason!). They’re going into a beautiful book that lets you explore new techniques in a 100-block sampler quilt. You can preorder the book now on Amazon if you’re super excited about it like I am!

Thanks for joining me for “happy hour,”


P.S. I post photos weekly of my The Splendid Sampler blocks on Instagram. Follow me @lindsmayland to see!


  1. The coffee cup pattern is really cute. Do you have a pattern for a beer mug for the man cave? Keep up the great work. Love the articles.
