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.
