    My pieced Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Quilt.

    Here is a photo of my pieced Sylvia's Bridal Sampler from the book by Jennifer Chiaverini. I now want to buy some fabric for the border and then ask a friend to quilt it on her LA machine for me. I slightly changed the original layout of the quilt which was 10 blocks across and 14 rows down and added four blocks from Jennifer Chiaverini's Loyal Union Sampler book and made it 12 blocks down and 12 blocks across to make a square quilt. The blocks are all 6 inches.
    I had both books "spiral bound" which made using the books so much easier.
    I used all small print Christmas fabrics and the quilt has 3928 little pieces of fabric - (not counting the sashing) and I started this journey on the 24th March 2013.

    Congrats on getting this beautiful quilt done. There certainly are a lot of mini blocks.
