Sylvia's Bridal Quilt is inspired by the book "The Master Quilter". It is the sixth novel in the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini. There are currently numerous online groups as well as in-person groups that meet to create their own versions of this beautiful quilt.
I have been collecting Thimbleberries Fabrics for several years now. I decided to make my quilt using these rich colors. They remind me of the Civil War era when women gathered around and stitched together while their men were at war. Their love and support for their men (brothers, fathers, husbands, and sons) as well as for one another as women is a guiding example for us all.
I'd like to share with you the first of my 140 blocks. (Please excuse the rough edges and dangling threads. None of the blocks have been squared-up yet.)
This is Block One: Mosiac #3.
Block 2 is Shoofly.
Block 3 is called Bright Hopes.
This is Block 5: Amethyst. I skipped Block 4, because it has applique and Karen is going to help me learn her technique of hand-applique. She does gorgeous work. :)
Will keep you posted as we stitch along on our quilts.
Tell me about what you're working on.
May God's hand touch you and your art. xoxo
