Over a year ago I decided to make a Sylvia's Bridal Sampler quilt from the book by Jennifer Chiaverini.

I've regretted that decision regularly, since I am a one-at-a-time quilter. That's why it earned its name, as many times in the last year I've said I would love to work on (whatever new project attracted me) except that "I have to finish that Stupid Sylvia quilt".

But finally I can call it DONE and move on to something smaller, easier, and a lot more fun. So why am I even glancing at the Dear Jane book??!

Your quilt is beautiful! It looks like you spent a lot of time creating it.

I bow to your "sticktoitive" (is that a real word) laugh.

The quilt is beautiful, well done.

that's a masterpiece! You must have willpower up the kazoo - I can't imagine having the self discipline to work on only one project for that length of time. Give yourself a big pat on the back!

The quilt is fabulous, and clearly was a lot of work. I'm a huge fan of simple, solid, wide borders - it really makes teh viewer focus in on the blocks and frames them beautifully.

What's the finished size of the blocks?

OMG - I think I would have quit quilting by now if I would start something like that.
It is gorgeous. Wonderful job.
