Love the greens...very pretty block
Someday I'll learn to not sew when I'm tired. These are the second of each block. I couldn't go to bed knowing they were wrong. No frogging just all new pieces.
Kris you have beautiful new fabrics. I am not a green person but I love the greens on the right. I am a purple and blue person and needless to say they are beautiful too.
Thanks Marilyn. In general I'm not a green person either but I like these.
Your blocks are beautiful and I love the greens.
kris, both of your blocks are great gini

It's funny though that now I'm liking the first set better. I saw the blocks side by side on my computer screen and liked them together.
Am I wishy washy or what.
not wishy washy Kris, you just needed to have another quilt.
In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!
Yay Judy. I like your block.
Thanks Kris. After seeing how you are connecting your Loyal Union blocks as you go, I thought I'd play around in EQ7 with Sylvia's Bridal a bit. I'm gong to put them on point with sashing. I'll only need about 90 blocks for a 95x95 quilt.
Here's one possible layout. Ignore the borders. I'd carry the sashing blocks into the next border. Also, the blocks in this picture, aren't necessarily the blocks from Sylvia's, just some I pulled in.
I may do the same layout with the Union Soldier
Very nice Judy. I like the on-point layout with the star sashing.
QCA denied me access to start a new post, so I am going to try asking a general Sylvia's Bridal Sampler question under the wrong post. My daughter gave me the book for Christmas. I'm looking forward to starting it (along with several other projects). My question is about picking fabric. Did you just use fabric out of your stash, buy new? I still have trouble coordinating fabric, so any ideas are appreciated!
you can not start your own thread in this group. This is to help me keep track of members' posts. There is a general discussion thread. If you go back to the group's homepage you'll find instructions on how to see threads older than two months (QCA's default). I'll try to bring the discussion thread back to the top.
To answer your question: I purchased fabrics for my project. I'm using muslin as my background.
Pick a border fabric you like then select colours that are in it. Or you can use the colour wheel to see which colours work well together. Substitute colours for the one in the book or use the same ones.You really can't go wrong if you like what you use
