still swooning...

I finished 3 more of my Swoon blocks this week.  These 3 and the 2 remaining all use directional prints, so I am making each block one at a time to make sure I get the print laid out in the correct direction.  (These 3 all had the houndstooth fabric.)

My husband was gone from Sunday until Wednesday night, so I stayed up late every night working on them.  I'm making this for my friends' wedding, which is August 10th, so I'm hoping to have it completed by then. 

Only 2 blocks left & then I can sash them & get the quilt top done!

More about my Swoon quilt here, here, here, here, and here.  Goodness I have been working on this one for what feels like a long time!

  7. Such pretty blocks - it's going to be a gorgeous quilt! I start on mine in less than two weeks - woohoo!! I hope it turns out as nice as yours! Whoop whoop!

  8. Love these blocks!! Great colors, and I saw the newest post about the striped fabric not cooperating. Too bad, so frustrating to be so excited about almost finishing and then be disappointed with the final result.
