Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Row B & LIB Blocks

I think this list thing I am doing is really working. I focus on what is on the list and get it done then move to the next item. Genius! Here are the rest of the SBS blocks for August. We are trying to do a row a month.







Row B. I think I am going to start sashing them and put them together now. This way when I am finished with the last row I will only have to add the borders.
Here are four more "Life Is Beautiful" blocks. This makes 20 of 32 stitcheries done. I look forward to making the blocks.



I hope you all have a fantastic, healthy week with LOTS of time to play.

The SBS is coming together nicely. I like the little bit of yellow with the blue and white. Great idea to put the rows together so you will be ready for the borders when you finish the last block. What a cute stitcheries.

I was just thinking about you as I was just prepping some more LIB blocks to stitch...I love making them too! :o)

Your SBS is going to be one very beautiful, soft quilt.

Yvette, I love how all the fabrics in your blocks cordinate so well and your stichery is perfect.

Joy said...

I've got my work cut out for me! And #8 on that block is going to possibly make my teeth hurt. But, I will conquer it! Your blocks are AWESOME Yvette, simply awesome!

(And your stitcheries are Sew Cute. I love the little sayings!)

Wishing a safe, healthy week, with stitching time, right back at'cha!

Fabulous progress on all your projects. The list thing really does work.

Blue and yellow, so very nice together and cute stitchery. Be sure to add 'Bedtime' to your September Goals. LOL.

Gosh you do get a lot of different things done..... I love those lovely fresh blues - your stitchery is lovely and those Life is Beautiful designs are just great..... Are they your own designs? Hugz

Love the blues on the your bridal quilt! but I am biased when it comes to blues.
Your life is beautiful stitcheries are looking lovely. They are great fun to put together.

Love all the blocks you have gotten done!! I too like to sash as I go, it's so nice to just have to do the borders at the end.

These are just beautiful Yvette! Honestly, I know I will never get into hand stitching, but your little stitcheries sure make me want to try, they are so adorable!

Cindy said...

LIFE really does "seam" beautiful at your house. Yvette, you're definitely in a groove - a GREAT sewing groove.

Beautiful blocks - both the sewn ones and the stitcheries.

Whew! you have been very busy. I love the sayings on the "life" blocks.

Kim D. said...

Wow, lots of lovely blocks. I love the LIB blocks, especially the last one, so cute.

Linda said...

I'm drooling over all those beautiful blocks!

Kim said...

I love the blue color scheme of the Sylvia's Bridal quilt and the Life is Beautiful stitcheries are meaningful with whimsy!

I love your redwork. I have wanted to try this for some time. I think you have just inspired me.

The list is brilliant! Its like posting on the fridge to remind you of what you should be doing - only for everyone to see. How can you not follow though, we would all know. I envy you of this - I think I would fail and die of embarrassment... Perhaps if I started small.
Thank you for the idea - I will consider copying (if I get the nerve).

Robin said...

Sigh... the more SBS blocks I see, the more I want to make this quilt! Must. Finish. something.

Gorgeous blocks, as always!
