Three years ago after reading Jennifer Chiaverini’s book “The Master Quilter”, I became fascinated with the quilt in the story: Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler. Jennifer generously shared the patterns on-line and I decided to attempt my first sampler quilt. My sister, Tricia, joined me in the fun. She lives miles away so we shared our efforts through email and scanners. I am also part of a group of quilters around the world who are making these blocks together.
I am still working on it. I have finished 76 blocks and I think that is enough for a comfy quilt. It has been a scrappy quilt, using up my fabric leftovers. So I am making the sashings the same way…scrappy. I like how this looks so far.
Hopefully I’ll have a top finished soon. Lets see if I can have it all the way done before another three years goes by.
By the way, Jennifer has many other books published too. Very good reading.
