beige is better

I finished my first "real" block for my Swoon quilt!  I am really liking the new background fabric.



This isn't the best picture, but I finished the block at 10 last night and didn't want to wait until this morning to take a picture.  I don't know if it is just the different background fabric, or the fact that these two fabrics are my favorites of the line, but I'm liking this block much, much more.  (Plus, how nice that my bedroom walls are the perfect shade of red to match the fabrics!)  Hopefully the subsequent blocks turn out just as well.  One down, eight to go!
