Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Blocks

Just 17 blocks away from finishing all blocks for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Quilt. Mostly, it's been fun. Some have been a major pain to do, but am glad for getting them done. Wish it had crossed my mind to make notes about those harder ones since my friend wants to borrow the book. One thing I do know is carefully reading the directions helps tremendously, but isn't that true of just about anything worth doing? Rambler, Snail's Trail, and Silver & Gold are names for these three blocks. Generally, I send a picture of completed blocks to my daughter, dil, my eldest granddaughter, and a friend to share my progress...they've all commented on block names. Some make perfect sense, others none at all. Keep being amazed at what creative minds are out there--for coming up with designs I just can't fathom how they did, and then naming them such fun names most of the time!

Never thought I'd do all those blocks--just planned on doing a few for a table runner or such, but started at the first and just couldn't resist doing them all. Try it, you just might get addicted to making small blocks, too.
