    Peach and periwinkle anniversary sampler

    I have just completed this sampler to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. I used Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler book by Jennifer Chiaverini and added five extra blocks (total 145) to reset it and make a finished size of 108 inches square. I did it QAYG, and handquilted it. One of the extra blocks is an appliqué of the church where we were married.
    I started it in 2009, so it has been a real labour of love, but I have enjoyed every stitch. Now I just need to make some cushions to match. Thank you for looking.

    What a beautiful quilt! The pale tones are so striking with the dashes of deeper colors. And the skill level to pull this off is amazing.
