WIP Wednesday

I spent my sewing time this week working on my Swoon quilt. This has been a year-long WIP, so I'm excited to report some progress!

 WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced



Finished:

Nothing. And that's okay.

In progress

Swoon quilt!
My final 3 Swoon blocks.
I really had to force myself to crank these out. It's the HSTs! The saving grace of these blocks is that they're 24-inches, so you don't have to make too many. (The fabric is Hideaway and the pattern is Swoon by Camille Roskelly.)

  Oh, joy of joys my Swoon quilt top is done!!!! Well, done for now anyway. I think I'll add a border to make it a true queen size. #finishit2013 @croskelley @imagingermonkey
I'm so excited to have this quilt top finished! But now I'm thinking I'll add a border to make it a true queen size so it can go on our guest room bed. Also, I'm going to jump aboard the Scrappy Swoon-Along with the Hopeful Homemaker to make a back for this one, so it's not going to be a quick finish. (Have you seen her scrappy Swoon? Excellent.)

 Put my do Good Stitches quilt top together tonight. Hope that means I've reclaimed my sewing mojo!

Pixelated Heart quilt

I love your Swoon -- I'm about to start one myself, and I love seeing other people's fabric choices!

Love your swoon! That fabric is great. So bright and cheery.

I really like the Hideaway fabric and your swoon blocks look terrific. I haven't tried these blocks yet, but I think I might - maybe one block for a wall hanging? Or a whole quilt? We'll see!

Marla said...

Yay swoon. I like the hearts too. Maybe make a pixelated shamrock so it will actually be done before the appropriate holiday?
