In The Master Quilter, Sarah and Summer decide to make Sylvia and Andrew a wedding quilt by collecting 6” sampler blocks from Sylvia’s friends, colleagues, and admirers from around the world. Just as Sarah and Summer sought contributions for their quilt, I appealed to my quilting friends for help. Nearly eighty eager volunteers made the 140 blocks using fabrics from my first fabric line, “Elm Creek Quilts: Sylvia’s Collection” from Red Rooster Fabrics. The patterns for all of the blocks from “Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler” are available in my fourth pattern book, Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler from Elm Creek Quilts (C&T Publishing, 2009). Visit the Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler website to see photos of Sylvia’s Bridal Samplers made by quilters from around the world.
