Hey, thanks for all the great feedback on my new blog look! I was a little worried when I showed my new look to my husband and he said, " I liked the old design better". But when I shared that with a friend she mentioned that most husbands don't like change, and how we woman folk like to move the furniture just for fun (that's so me!) but men don't usually take to the new look right off. I'm also taking the comments that were something like, "that sure is red" as a good thing....that's what you meant right? It's sort of like those comments "did you get a new hair cut" followed by nothing.
My Baby's Swoon or Baby Swoon as she is called is done. I enjoyed every minute of making this project. This block is amazing and has unlimited potential. It works for any style of fabric and for any level of sewing. If you are a beginner quilter and have been scared to tackle a large bed size quilt, look no further. I'm keeping this pattern in the back of my mind, I think an itsy bitsy baby swoon, one where the blocks are 8 inches would be interesting to try.
So here's where we left off . .
Block 1, then it was on to . . .
Block 2, then . . .
Then I attached them all
and thought they looked so pretty, but wanted to use just a little more of that Nine Dots fabric . . .
so I added a thin border.
I don't use white background fabric near enough in my projects! For some reason I tend to use off whites or ivories, but I really love the crispness that the white background fabric adds to this project.
Baby Swoon is Lifetime Quilt Number 76.
She finished at 41" x 41" and has approximately 371 pieces.
The fabric is Nine Dots by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company for Henry Glass.
And the pattern is Swoon by Camille Roskelley for Thimble Blossoms.
