Announcing The Splendid Sampler 2 by good friends Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.

Pat and Jane invited 80 designers to join them for The Splendid Sampler 2 book. They asked each designer to create a block in their signature style, that answered this question: “I’m living my best quilting live when …” The book has a total of 100 quilt blocks, all 6″ finished blocks. Nancy Zieman Productions is honored to be a part of The Splendid Sampler 2 with Nancy Zieman’s block, Nancy’s Spool, featured on page 8!
