Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Quilt

I just spent the week making sample blocks from Sylvia's Bridal Sampler". This is the quilt that was inspired by the Elm Creek Quilts novels. I love those books. Right now I'm reading Cross Country Quilters. Anyway, these classes were great. I learned so much and I am now planning out my quilt. Joan Sheridan taught the class and she really did a great job. Her quilt is one of several that were published in this Sampler book. She taught Y seams, curves, partial seams as well as various other techniques. Even though I have been quilting for several years, I was amazed at the accuracy I achieved in these classes. It really was a week well spent. Thank you Joan for your expert advice and time.

Sounds like a good class to learn a lot of techniques. Y Seams and I don't get along!

I'm reading these books too. Right now I'm on The Quilter's Homecoming. I'd love to see your sampler.
