Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Row D + other stuff

Joy and I have the assignment of completing Row D of "Sylvia's Bridal Sampler" this month. Once I start making these blocks I like to finish, they are just so messy.
I think I should start taking pictures and looking at the blocks more closely before sewing them to the quilt. I see this one is completely off. Why didn't I notice this before??? Oh well, it really isn't as noticeable in person.


I had no idea how I was going to tackle this so I did it by hand. It isn't exactly as it should have been but I am calling it done.



Here are all the blocks sewn together. You can see them better if you click on the Frog Widget on the upper right side of my Blog.
I made the 10 Klosjes I planned on this month. That makes a total of 15 so far. Hmmmmm, 1985 to go. LOL!!!
This is the stitchery for "Berry Picking Party" block 2.
................number 11 of Redwork Baskets.
and finally, "Tisket a Tasket" quilted and bound.
I hope you all have a happy, healthy, creative week.

Congrats on so many blocks done. I love the color scheme you are using for Sylvia's. Very pretty. I keep thinking I'm tempted to make a second one. I loved working on the blocks.

Linda said...

I love the blocks all sewn together! Looks beautiful!

You had a very productive week. The SBS blocks are beautiful. What size quilt are you making out of the klosjes? Your embroidery is always so pretty. I know you are pleased to be done with the Tisket quilt.

Fantastic Yvette - love the colours in your SBS blocks. Diann and I have come to a standstill with our blocks. So much other lovely stuff too.

love those blocks for the bridal quilt. The colours wonderful. I don't think I could be game enough to attempt those blocks.
Amazing all your finishes.

Your Bridal is becoming such a beautiful quilt ! I also love the other things you made.

Joy said...

Boy you whipped out Row D fast! I find that encouraging! I think your blocks are just BEAUTIFUL. You got an awful lot done this week! The Klosjes are so cute--but the 1985 left to go is a bit daunting! Your stitcheries are so pretty. Tisket Tasket turned out just perfectly! I'm hoping you have another quilty, stitch-filled week! I plan to slog through my Row D a bit, and work on a few Christmas gifts! :)

Wow Yvette you are back up to high production again LOL. I love the SBS blocks, especially the fussy cut bird. With these little blocks, being a little off won't show at all :0)

Yvette, those Sylvia blocks are just beautiful! I love all your work, but I think I like the klosjes best!
You do have a lot more of them to make! Maybe that would be a good swap project with a large group?! :)

Carrie P. said...

That look so great put together. Well done.
Love your embroidery blocks too.
Congrats on finishing your basket quilt. Very nice.

Karen said...

I was unable to pick my favourite bridal block, because I love them all! A Tisket, A Tasket turned out great and the klosjes are coming along nicely and I love the tea stitchery!

Karen said...

The blue, yellow, and green combo for the quilt blocks has such a fresh look to it.

Holy cow! That frog widget thingy is totally awesome!!! Brilliant idea! It is fun going through and seeing some of those quilts-in-progress you've got going. You are a lot further along in the Rainbow Jane than I realized. So cool!

And, as always, beautiful blocks, Yvette! And yay for a finished quilt!!! Fabulous!
