I'm Done

Over the last week I've sewn up the rest of my Sylvia's Bridal Sampler blocks.  I've decided to call it quits at 63 blocks.   Steps to the Altar was the last of the traditionally pieced blocks in the book for me to make. 

Steps to the Altar

There are 140 blocks in the quilt and the rest of the blocks in the book are made using either foundation piecing or templates.  Being more of an "instant gratification" type patchworker lately, I went looking on-line for alternative insructions to make some of the blocks below rather than follow the instructions in the book.

Rolling Star
Rocky Road to California
Flock of Geese
Gentleman's Fancy
Lemoyne Star
Next Door Neighbour
North Wind
Windmill (Pinwheel 2)
And hot off the sewing machine, the last block, and probably my favourite because I love all the colours together:

Love in a Mist
Had a wonderful day out yesterday with my two girls wedding dress shopping.  Although we came home empty handed we had a lovely time.  Found lots of styles that don't suit, so that's a start.  Some of the sales assistants were horrified that Elizabeth is marrying in 3 months and doesn't have her dress.

I'm off to trace some Christmas stitcheries.

Wow!! Those other blocks are lovely and will fit in just fine. I think 63 is a good number. You done good!

The blocks are fantastic, you and Diann have been working on this quilt for a while now it will be lovely to see it come together.
As for the dress, my cousin had her dress a year or more before the wedding then it didn't fit her. She bought a new one about 2 weeks before the wedding, no dramas. I am sure Elizabeth will find the dress and it will be just right. (lol my cousins name is Elizabeth too!)
