Few Words about Sylvia's Bridal Sampler

It has been a while when I last time wrote about the progress of my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler.

I have written journal of sewing the SBS blocks. Afterwards it's really fun to read those notes, although I'm still on the way...

There are moments of happiness and moments of frustration after sewing blocks, which are not so perfect as I have hoped.

I started my journey in November 2008 picking up some dusty shades of blue, pink and green fabrics.

I have sewed now 77 blocks of total 140. So there will be plenty of different kind of moments ahead;)

I'm still making one SBS block in a week with the SBS group. It's quite slow pace - 63 weeks left - but I don't mind. I think there might be a huge prize waiting after this quilt is finished. So far I have enjoyed my journey a lot! And when I look the first blocks which I have made, I'm happy to noticing some progress of my quilting skills.

This week's block is G10 Arizona.

Maybe you want to come a long....???? It's a fantastic sampler!
And sewing it together makes it's more fantastic;)

Have a nice week!

Your blocks are beautiful!
I just started my journey and am trying to do 10 blocks a month. I may have to change that to 5 since they are so labor intensive.

I like how you are keeping a journal and I would say that every quilt has it's ups and downs. And, I do believe there is a huge prize waiting after you finish this quilt. :)

What a nice offer to envite everybody to sew along. I have too many projects to finish, but maybe one day I will make this beautiful quilt. Your blocks look very nice, so it is tempting to make that quilt.

I love seeing all of the SBS you complete. Your blocks are so beautiful and it is so inspiring! Someday (if I ever finish my Dear Jane), I hope to make one too.

Oh, I almost missed this post! You are well over half way to all blocks finished (7 blocks over is well over, right? *lol*). You know how much I love your fabric choices, and I can wait another 63 weeks to see all your blocks together! Keep at it, and you'll get there!
