SYLVIA'S BRIDAL SAMPLER QUILT

My good friend and customer Pauline made this beautiful quilt.  She has been working on it for about 3 years.  She made it from the quilt book Sylvia's Bridal Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts.  Sylvia's Bridal Sampler is a 140 block sampler quilt quilt made by the characters in a novel, The Master Quilter, the sixth in the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiaverini. In the story, the friends of Elm Creek Quilts founder Sylvia Bergstrom Compson secretly plan to make her a special quilt to celebrate her wedding. They ask all of her many friends, colleagues, and former students to contribute a block that represents what Sylvia means to them. That is why many of the sampler's blocks have a marriage theme, but others focus on friendship and others have meanings known only to their makers.

Pauline is a fairly new quilter and says she has learned a lot and can tell her quilt piecing skills have definitely grown over this quilt.  She says she can tell the difference in the early blocks vs. later blocks.  I thought they were all fabulous.
