So pretty! Yes, I love red too.

Sarah said...

I like blues and greens but the red is striking!

Joanne O'H said...

I also love red especially red houses in samplers.

Krista said...

Both of these samplers are beautiful in color combinations. Red is striking and the yellow in the second one is so pretty. Love all the letters, wish I could make out the verse.

Margaret said...

I think red is what grabs me in a sampler too. These are lovely.

Nupur said...

Green seems to attract my interest

I would have to say red also...and pinks.

Laurie in Iowa said...

It would have to be red.

Monica said...

The muted colors of old samplers. I wish I could make out the verse too.

samplerlover said...

Michele said...

Reds and Golds every time

Nicola said...

A comment for Barbara G - I have discovered that I do not care for pink, I tend to like muted tones.

Nicola said...

Comment on behalf of Wilma - My favourite colour is definitely red. Besides the old colours which occur often in samplers I love stitching monochrome samplers in red.

Vera said...

Definitely reds and shades of blue. Lovely samplers.

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I think red is a favourite for everyone, it's certainly one of mine too.

Lelia said...

Red is nice; however, I favor golden color. Such Weakness!!!

Theresa said...

Well like most stitchers that have replied so far,
mine is red...

although I love deep yellows and golds too, and greens!

Cheri said...

I am a red lover also, in samplers and quilts.

DawnM said...

I am attracted to red in a sampler as well.

Terry N said...

I too love red, especially houses. I've been known on occasion to change the color of a house on a sampler to red.

Marsha said...

Blue or blue green.

Julie said...

I like blues and greens, too. But it's the motifs that really call to me, more than the color.

Jane in Wisconsin said...

If it has RED, iI want to do it!

Chris said...

I love greens!

Louise said...

I too love red in a sampler.

Kim Hummel said...

I love red, next would be greens. Do not like orange, but if it is in a repro I go for a "burnt red" to stay close to the original

Gary Parr said...

That's a great couple of samplers.

I love samplers with houses and/or birds used in the motifs. I did see one recently with a bright red house that I really loved (of course I cannot recall name presently!) ugh. I love the color green, as well, so samplers with bright green foliage or an expanse of green lawn also catch my attention. I just read somewhere online that samplers from Rhode Island used a blue house in their design, so I'd like to find one of those to stitch someday.
