I have a good background picked, butcher paper templates cut out, some fabrics pulled, and now I have a question before I dig in and do my first block...
...did anyone consider making the blocks slightly larger?? I'm trying to decide if I want to make the blocks a little less crowded by making them 12 x 15 rather than 11 x 14. I'm contemplating teasing them apart just a tiny bit. Does anyone think that will ruin the look?
I would love input on this...all the posted blocks have been so beautiful and inspiring!!

What I'm going to do is pick out my least favourite block and leave it out, I'll have to do a little re-arranging of blocks and rows! I thought that I would put the Bride on the first row and make her block 2. Then the table and flowers block in the middle (block 3), then the Groom as block 4. I'm just one of these people that has to have symmetry so I had to work out how to balance the bride and groom blocks.
If any one wants a copy of the groom, let me know and I'll email it as a PDF. I still haven't been able to find any reference (except for the newspaper templates) of where Margaret's groom came from.
I'm off to cut out the pattern pieces for him, hope to have him done for the weekend. I think the peacock block might be the one I drop out of the quilt, I'm really not enjoying stitching it!!

................have a look at that, I think they might be siblings ;o)
And have a look at her groom, isn't he handsome?? Now I think I'm going to get Margaret to send me a close up picture if she can because I reckon he's going to be my groom too!!
Thanks Margaret for allowing me to show all the 'Bride' girls your fabulous quilt and everyone go have a look at Margarets excellent samplers HERE.

Maybe I was just dazzled by the pinks and reds in the last block I did, I've got purples, reds and blues on a green bird for the second peacock..................
......and then of course the showy head crests are embroidered on last, they will be in reds and gold I think!!
What a fabulous blog we have going ladies, so many of us now that we are having posts just about every day. I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am with this blog and quilt.
Oh yes, I've decided to give the bride a groom, that will be my next block. I just have to work it out and then I'll be on to it. Nothing like a good wedding I always say.
Have a good week everyone.
