I have (after 4 years) finally finished my Sylvias Bridal Sampler quilt! I have filled out the entry form for this years Quilt show at Darling Harbour, Sydney in June 2013. It’s always a nice feeling when a quilt is completed – I guess it’s a feeling of accomplishment.
Apart from machine embroidery – I love quilting. For the past 4 years I have been working on a quilt called Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler. This quilt was designed by Jennifer Chiaverini of the Elm Creek novels.
I have just finished pinning it together and I have been practising my quilting on scraps of material, but haven’t yet worked up the courage to begin! Pinning alone took 4 hours and was hard on my knees. I was thinking of doing an all over continuous pattern and feathers around the outer edge.
