I started reading the The Quilter's Apprentice by Jennifer Chiaverini.  This is the first book in her Elm Creek Quilts Sampler series.  I also have the book of patterns for Sylvia's Bridal Sampler and my plan is to make the blocks as I read along with the book.

....The story so far (very condensed).... Sarah has agreed to help Sylvia get the maner cleaned and organized on the condition that Sylvia teach her to quilt.  So she cleaned and dusted and with the list that Sylvia gave her... off she went to the fabric store.  She has her pretty fabric and the first block Sylvia started her on was "Sawtooth Start".

.... Here is mine...(I don't know why it looks so wonky.  It really is square)  These blocks will finish at 6" and (for me) will be a very long work in progress. 
One I will most definitely enjoy since it will combine two of my loves.  Quilting and reading. 
I'll share my work as I read along and I hope you'll enjoy. 


  1. Love the block and love the books. I may have to also do this since I am reading this series as well.

  2. I read the first few books of the series several years ago and enjoyed them. I also have the Sampler book that I will work on eventually LOL.

I hope you're having a great day....Linda
