First Four Blocks of Sylvia's Bridal Sampler

I finally got a picture of the first four blocks of the Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. Because many of the people in the class are relative beginners, I started with the most basic blocks. I am going to use batiks and white for my blocks and hope that I can use a different batik in each one. Not sure that will happen but that is my goal. I have been going through the scrap basket at the quilt shop looking for batik scraps that seem to be big enough to make a block.

We had the first Executive Committee meeting for ECQG today and it went very well. Several of us went to lunch afterwards and I had great fish tacos - Yum!

Had an employee meeting at the quilt shop. We are planning for our big yearly sale and for the Atlanta Shop Hop in late February/early March. We are also starting to put in a Point of Sale system so that should be a fun time.

I also quilted two small baby quilts for a customer. I have one more to finish so I can deliver them in the morning. Busy, busy day!


  1. I just got my 1st one hand pieced today. I'm about half way through the second one. I went back to the store and got the apple green binder. I haven't printed everything out, but I've got a dozen patterns printed and in sleeves, and I'm going to print out the rest over the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the inspiration and direction!

  2. I love your blocks, the color choices are all beautiful. It is nice that so many different ability levels are represented in the blocks. It gives beginners a lot of opportunity to grow with the quilt



I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
