    Oh is it gorgeous. But my heavens what a project. I understand calling it stupid sylvia. Every two to three years I do something challenging. But I only pieced for a little over a month and was complaining. Ok I was also getting aquainted with my new ripping too. After doing this you know you can do anything you set your mind to. Congrats

    Because if your like me, you love working with small pieces and you love a challenge! The feeling of accomplishment when a piece like this is done is grand indeed.

    BTW- my first introduction to "Dear Jane" was a quilt I saw at the International show in Chicago a few years ago and like you, she had a love/hate relationship with the quilt and named it "No Pain, No Jane".

    Your Stupid Sylvia quilt is awesome!! Beautiful work, lovely fabric choices.

    Keep going. I see Jane, Omigosh, and Farmers Wife in your future!!

    That is one beautiful sampler quilt!! I think you might need to consider a namechange when you have a little more distance from the project- it's fabulous!

    Thanks so much for sharing your journey with us. I know how you feel. I did that on a Totally Tubular quilt and as I was endlessly working on it, it somehow got renamed 'The quilt from H - - -". I even included the nickname on the label when I was finished but amazingly it looked good when done. Yours is spectacular though and now you know you can do anything! :-)

    Awesome! I completely understand why you're calling it Stupid Sylvia. Working on 6" blocks right now & I can't even say what I'm calling it in my head. You're quilt is gorgeous :)

    It's beautiful but now I am a tad apprehensive to start anything from the Dear Jane CD I bought a couple of weeks ago. It may have been a pain but oh boy is it gorgeous!

    It is fantastic!! I can understand your frustration though, it must have been stressful at times and I feel quilting should be relaxing and fun.

    I Know she will love it.

    I am reading the Chiaverini book now about Sylvia's bridal quilt blocks. I also bought the book that has the block patterns in it, but I don't know if I will ever attempt to do the whole bridal quilt. Your's looks great!! Wonderful job.
