Yes, I know...I've talked about nothing but Swoon since the new year began. Maybe I need to find an in-between project to mix it up a bit so you don't get bored.
But anyway...I fixed up Block 3, which had been in pieces on the spare-room bed:
I'm now 2/3 of the way done with Swoon blocks. Here are the first six:
And a view from a different angle.
I don't know what I'm going to do when all nine blocks are completed - where will I lay them out to photograph them? I don't have a large floor space anywhere in the house. I guess I'll have to move the table out of the dining room ;-)
Now that I feel like progress is being made on this quilt, I'm starting to think about the actual quilting. This one's going to be huge - bigger than anything I've made before, big enough to fit on my queen-sized bed (once I get the sashing and borders on it) and I'm concerned that I won't be able to quilt it myself on my little Bernina. Over on the Flickr group, there has been a discussion about the quilt-as-you-go method. It looks interesting but I'm not convinced - any thoughts on that? What would you all recommend for quilting designs? Ideas are always welcome!
Oh...Happy February! I changed up the décor in the front entry and put out the Valentine Mini quilt I made along with my Tisket a Tasket quilt and a yo-yo tree. It's nice and red and white in there now.
