Bridal Sampler Update

I have finished 9 more blocks for a total of 27.


This has been an interesting project for me.  When I start making blocks, I think that I will make 15 or 20.  By the time 9 or 10 blocks are made, I am ready to move on to a new project.  My goal is to have 21 blocks finished by the end of this year – we will see how that works out.

Check out the grid on the right for the positions of all the finished blocks.

Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler

One of my current WIP (Work-in-Progress) is Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler.  I pull this project out every 3 or 4 months and sew 6 or 7 blocks, then back into the closet it goes.  The colors are mostly cream, maroon and olive green.   It is a bit hard to see in the picture, but all these blocks have the sashing strips attached on the right side.  I found a cream stripe print which I really like for the sashing.  In my experience most quilters shy away from stripes, but they can add a wonderful sense of direction and movement to a quilt.

Here are a couple more finished blocks.

18 down – 122 to go.
