Sylvia's Bridal Sampler

The new year, and the fact that Diann has been choosing simpler blocks to get us going, has brought along enthusiasm for these blocks.

Anvil
Churn Dash
All the blocks made so far hanging on the design sheet.
I'm still not keen on foundation piecing and was very surprised to see how many blocks in the quilt are pieced this way.

1-1/2 Little Patchwork Village blocks to stitch.  I'm looking forward to sewing this wallhanging together - it will be a nice change for the wall in my sewing room.  I've had Leanne's House hanging there for the last 4 years.

OOOH, I love your SBS blocks. They are all so bright and cheerful.

so pretty, they are going to look very colourful and inspiring on your sewing room wall. What batting do you have for your design wall as I was looking for one with good 'stick'

Not my favourite way of piecing either, but the end result is great!

You girls have a bit of a head start on me Lynda - I am not a fan of paper piecing so will have to pull on the big girl panties and give it a try I guess! I jsut got my Leanne's House quilt out for the first time since I moved. It was on the wall in the passage of the other house....and I packed it away..."found" it the other night and it's now hanging in this house....No stitching here at the moment.....maybe on the weekend!

The blocks look so beautiful. Amazing how different they can look using different colours. Come on Lorraine. If I can do it, you can too. Drag on those big girl panties and have a go.
