I couldn't help it! After finishing 14 UFO's within 4 months, I thought I deserved a little treat, didn't I?! :))
Earlier this year I discovered Ria's blog, and she is making Sylvia's Bridal Sampler. I think it is so beautiful, and the fabric she's chosen are just gorgeous!
I have purchased fabrics from Moda/French General - the "Rural Jardin' collection, but have yet to decide on background fabric. I believe I'll choose either white tone-on-tone or cream tone-on-tone, but haven't decided on that yet.
I've thought of hand sewing, but that seems so scary because that is something I've never done before - but still want to try - to test my patience - lol! I don't even know what kind of stitches to do - lol!
Another book I've bought, is 'Farmer's Wife', which is a sampler quilt too.
I consider to use cream tone-on-tone for the background and using fabrics from my stash.
I have yet to decide which one goes first... Perhaps SBS - perhaps FW. This is going to be a project I'll be working on aside of other projects. I'm sure I'll go insane if I have only one of these to work on, especially if I chose sewing by hand - lol! So please don't expect me to finish any of them this year! :))
If there are others out there in the wonderful blogland working on - or have done - any of these quilts, I'd love to hear from you! I'd like to know your experiences, like how you made it (machine- or hand sewing), a special fabric collection or fabrics from your stash, background fabric etc...
