    Yeah, Aunt jo glad you are working too. I have been working on a couple finishes. Precut two more blocks today.

    Hi again - further to my last reply in this thread, the exhibition (in which I won the visitor's choice award) has been mentioned in the March edition of a magazine called British Patchwork and Quilting. I was absolutely thrilled to discover a small picture of my SBS and a report about my quilt in it !!! I was also pleased to read my quilt group was likened to a miniature version of a much larger British exhibition - it cannot get any better than that and I can't wait to tell our group at our next meeting.

    More eye candy, thanks giquilt!! I love the bright colours and your background fabric. How many blocks did you do?

    There are more ladies who didn't finish their Sylvia yet, maybe one or two will join you

    I actually have never counted my blocks. Just made a paper list of your weeks. So when I think I'm through I might not be if I missed some. Each completed row is in a bag (A,B,C,....etc) and I think I have all 10 completed thru F. But as we have skipped around so much I don't know. At this point afraid to count might make me stop doing them. Thanks Aneal for still supporting those of us trying to finish.

    LOL giquilt, I know that feeling.
    When you're over 70 you won't stop! That means you're almost there
    Yes we skipped around a lot, because I tried to mix easy and harder blocks and for those who work(ed) with FQ's that way you will have the fabrics in all the rows - well, most rows

    The Virtual weekend is coming soon so you'll have some more done! You'll get there. Look at your avatar, you did that one too and the Challenge quilt was way harder than the Sylvia with all those tiny 3" blocks!

Size:  1.84 MBThe 9 Sylvia blocks I completed in the last 5 days. Also worked on a few other projects during the Virtual Weekend sponsored by the this Q board. If I have a few more of these weekends might get 're done. I cut 7 blocks ahead and had them in baggies ready to sew. May try this again too. I will say these were some of the hardest blocks I've done. Especially the ones with curved pieces. I was actually excited to see an instruction with the word "Y-seam." Good luck to others still plugging away.

    Awww thank you giquilt!!

    You did so well with the curved piecing (and the other piecing too hahahaha)!! Did you ever think you would be excited to do Y-seams? Some blocks are nearly impossible to do, like the Peter/Paul one, I really hated that block. Maybe it's time for a group photo Would love to see all blocks together!

    Giquilt, I went back and read a bit, in January you passed the half-way mark. So I guess you will have well over 100 blocks by now! Not too bad, isn't it?

    Ooh, that is nice to hear if I have over 100. Probably should do a group photo, could tell me if I have some missing colors. Will think about it.

    Good morning to all from the UK.
    I am so pleased to be able to tell you that I entered my SBS into the National Championships at Sandown here in the UK last month. I attained first place in the Sampler Quilt Category and was presented with a lovely silver colour salver plate and rosette.

    Thank you Anael and giquilt for your kind comments. You are really on a roll giquilt with all your blocks ! Your colours are lovely and we will soon see your finished SBS. This thread used to be so busy - it would be great for it to be busy again.
