    Sylvia Bridal Sampler BOW

    In January we will start a block of the week, using Jennifer Chiaverini's book Sylvia's Bridal Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts.
    Our goal is 2 blocks a week, a schedule still has to be worked out if there is going to be one! This is open for discussion

    You will need the book to be able to join. If you thought about making this quilt, please join us in the fun If you’ve already started, but got side-tracked, please jump in where you are and share your blocks.

    There will be no patterns given and there is no sign-up required. Participants must purchase their own copy of the book. Participants are not permitted to share copies of the book's contents.

    Here you can ask questions, share tips and show off your beautiful blocks or completed quilt. You can do as many as you like

    You will make a wonderful moderator. I have the book and did a few blocks when works on the FWS but I have no immediate plans to continue it. I wish you the best.

    Anael--I am one of the "viewers"...after you posted about it on the PC thread I came here and subscribed so I didn't miss out on the blocks.

    I ordered the book yesterday and plan to participate, although I don't foresee being able to keep up. I will do what I can.

    Barb, we don't have a plan yet. No stress, just do what you can. 1 block a week means you're working on this one about 2 1/2 years. The first Sylvia I made took me almost 3 years to finish.

    Thanks Anael! I am really excited but I also know that my time is limited. I "think" I could do a block a week. I am hoping to pick fabrics this weekend. I should have the book tomorrow!

    You're welcome One block a week, two or one block every other week, it's all ok. We will be here to cheer you on.

    Welcome to all who want to join the fun. As said, there's no pressure, just do what you can or what you like. If some of you want a schedule, I can try and work one out. Or assign one or two blocks every week, so it will be a surprise which blocks to make each week.
    Tell me what you want please.

    Hi Anael, I'm here and definitely joining you (but you already knew that). My first two blocks are finished, can't wait for January to get here when I will start sewing up a storm in my clean sewing room

    Mirabelle, I knew that It's great to see you here though and I can't wait to see your first blocks!

    Elisabrat, the blocks are 6" finished.

    I made the blocks for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler last year but have yet to completely put the top together. Life just gets in the way! LOL This quilt is great for learning new techniques. Stretched me! My advise would be to take your book to Office Depot or maybe Staples and have them put the spiral binding on it. Very inexpensive to do and such a big help. The book will then lay flat and is much easier to use.

    AlvaStitcher, please show us the quilt when you put it together! We would love to see it.

    Good idea to put a spiral binding on the book. It really makes things so much easier

    Hi Anael,
    This is a link to my SBS design wall - with which you can click on any block and it will enlarge it. Do let me know if it doesn't open !

    DottyD....wow....those are both impressive! Where/how did you get your Virtual design wall, is it a program that can be purchased or something like an excel spreadsheet?

    I had sort of put this one aside, thinking I'd never finish, but I'm planning to follow along with you. I have a few blocks done and several in packages ready to sew. I was thinking of doing a QAYG on this quilt. If I can't keep up I'll watch everyone else. Fun, fun for the New Year.

    Hi Mirabelle,
    Thank you so very much for your kind comments. I discovered the design wall when I was doing my Dear Jane - but sadly Sharon Mastbrook - who put all the details of how to upload it - has for some reason - removed all the details of how to do it from the web - so I am afraid I can't help you. Lots of people tried to find out how to do it - I believe even Brenda Papadakis ( who wrote Dear Jane) could not find out why it disappeared ! I am so sorry about that.
    Regards,
    Dot.
