I finally finished all of my Swoon blocks for my bed quilt!! I wasn't so sure about some of them, but it's really growing on me! I am thinking about swapping out the mustard one in the bottom corner though...and making another block closer to others' colors. Anyway, for now, this is it! I still have a lot of work to do to get this one finished, but it's progress for now.
I am also making some progress on my English paper piecing quilt. So far, this piece is about the size of an oversized table runner....a long way from a lap quilt. I've been taking these diamonds with me everywhere and have been making at least one star a day. So at this rate it will be another 6 months to get the top done. Oh well, this is going to be a relaxing project and I love that it is going to be entirely hand pieced and hand quilted!
This morning as we were heading in to and stopped at a light, I glanced over at the next car. This woman was just staring at me as I was happily stitching some diamonds. No sooner do I look over but she turns to the passenger and he pops his head up and looks at me too...guess no one ever sews in the car anymore, sheesh!! It was pretty funny, I just laughed. I'm sure they thought I was a little off my rocker, but that's okay!
My LQS had a great sale on fat quarters this week (in honor of Fat Tuesday, hehe!). I bought a couple of FQs of Kaffe, something I honestly never thought I would ever purchase! I always like how Kaffe fabrics look in quilts, but I just have never bought any.
And more Paris fabric...I just love this fabric!! It's so kitchy and I love the paisleys and flowers. What am I going to do with all this fabric?? I have no idea...but I am sure it will be fun!
Linking up over at Freshly Pieced...love seeing everyone else's projects every week!!
