Hi! The book just fell into my cart when I bought my sewing machine. :-D I really like this book. I understood the directions just fine. The book gives directions for paperpiecing some of the blocks. So I had a binding put on it so it would be easier to copy the patterns. I have made six of the blocks so far. Hope this helps.

Check out quiltwithus.connectingthreads.com and look at the group Darlene's Slackers Quilt Along. We are making Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. There is lots of discussion and helpful hints on making some of the blocks. Also, there are corrections on some of the directions in the book. We started last June but several have joined just recently. A couple have completed it but many others have only a few blocks made. I have about 40 made. It is a fun group, come join us.

i put in a bid on the book from ebay. i wish i had known about BOMC2.com. i never heard of that buying site before. thanks.

btw, amazon was the most expensive, then ebay and then barnes and noble.
but the best was bomc2. if i lose the bid (i hope so), that's where i'll go.

I got the book as a present for my birthday. I am presently collecting the fabrics to make it (I don't have a stash), but I am really looking forward to starting it.

Come on. You can join now. We have members at all stages-haven't begun, working slowly, working quickly, and finished. You can see pictures of completed blocks and get ideas for colors and placement. There are a few from the UK, also.
