Help me choose...

I am getting ready to start a couple of new projects and need your help with one of them.  I can't make up my mind on which one I want to start.  Yes, I know that it is up to me, but I would like your opinions.  Sooooo, vote for one of the 4 patterns. I narrowed it down to these four.  I don't want one that looks too crowded.  One says for wool but I"ll probably just do it in cotton.  Not sure yet.  I have signed up for a wool project but more on that later.  Where was I?  Oh yes.  My sewing machine works best with under 36".  I do have a friend who does Long Arm quilting though so could pay her to finish anything larger.  Here is some information about the patterns.

Number 1 - Savannah's Pride by Lori Smith of From my heart o your hands.    Finished Size is 34" x 34".  The finished blocks are 7" x 7".

 


Number 2 - Fit to Frame:  Pattern Thirteen by Lori Smith of From my heart o your hands.  Finished size is 18" x 24" with the finished blocks being 5" x 5".



Number 3 - Lydia's Pride by Lori Smith of From my heart o your hands..  Finished Size 29 1/2" x 29 1/2".   Applique blocks finish at 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".



Number 4 - Amelia's Garden by Lori Smith of From my heart o your hands.  Finished size 31 1/2" x 31 1/2".  Finished block is 7 1/2" x 7 1/2".



Yes they are all by Lori Smith of From my heart o your hands.  I was at Acorn Quilts and they had a sale on a lot of patterns and found myself stocking up.  These I've collected over the past couple of years (and more).

Now for the other pattern.  I just signed up for this BOM from a semi local quilt shop.  It is called Warm Winter Blessings.  It will finish around 54" x 63" (If I don't change the pattern).  :)  This one I will have to send to Shelley to quilt I think.  Did you read that Shelley?

Savannah's Pride - #1. But they're all really cool - and, dare I say it, complicated! Have fun with whatever you choose.

Thanks everybody for letting me know which ones you like. I'm keeping the voting open so you can always change your vote. LOL. I change my mind ALL the time so why shouldn't you?

They all look alike to me so there isn't much of a choice. Right stick a pin and go with that one.

What a hard decision if I had to choose from the 4 flora quilts-there is alot of siilarities in them. For me, that snowman quilt is my favorite!

Teresa said...

I see your dilemma. They are so similar that I would have a difficult time choosing. I think I like number 1 the best, though. Other than the snowman one. :D

Bonni said...

The snowman one will be done because that is a BOM. The others will be done just not sure which block I want from which yet. It is fun to look at them and get other opinions.
