My group's Club Quilt this year is from the quilt book based on one of the Elm Creek Quilters series of books. It is Sylvia's Bridal Quilt. Mine will be 144 6 1/2" blocks! I really debated about making this quilt. I also want to start a Dear Jane quilt and I fretted they were too similar. I am so happy I put those worries aside and signed up for another year.
This block is Sylvia's Bridal Bouquet. It took about 3 hours to make and I think it is very lovely. One of my friends almost gave up and I told her she must make this block -- how can it be Sylvia's Bridal Quilt without her bouquet?
I'm using the Wiscasset line from Moda, designed by Minick and Simpson for my quilt. I guess I'll have another year of a traditional club quilt. I'll have to mix this up next year.
I have about 30 blocks done so far, my goal to keep up this year is to finish 10 blocks a month. So I'm on track so far! I'll keep you posted. Next month I'll show some more of my blocks. They are really fun to make.
