    Sylvia's Bridal Sampler finished

    I started this quilt January 2014 as a BOW here on the board hosted by Anael. I had a few setbacks along the way but finally finished it before Christmas last year. I machine quilted it at my LQS last month and it is now finished.

    Thank you so much Anael and everyone else who participated in this BOW for your encouragement along the way, I couldn't have done it without you

    Beautiful quilt. A very patience person. I have the rush when doing patterns or the quilting but that is me, but have to slow down to eventually make mine as good as yours.

    Lovely quilt MiraB! I love the scrappiness of all the different fabrics, and the light background really does it service.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I love the fabric colors you used. How does it work when you quilt it at the lqs? Do you leave it on the frame? How long did it take you to quilt? Do other people quilt on this when you are not there?

    so pretty, way too much work for me.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    FabStripper the LQS owner helps to load the quilt top on the frame, sets up the design and then I quilt it on her HQ16. I quilted an edge to edge design, its all computerized so not hard at all. This one took all day as it was so long. I have quilted several tops so am now familiar with the machine and don't require too much assistance.

    Thank you everyone for your kind words, this is the third large sampler quilter I have made, just one more to finish and I think I am almost over sampler quilts

    Kudos to you for completing this wonderful quilt! The FWS is on my bucket list. But I think Sylvia has more complex blocks than FW. Your quilt is lovely and you will get years of enjoyment both using it and staring at it as there is so much to look at.
