Girlfriends, let me tell you...it's like walking through a botanical garden and art museum all in one fell swoop!
I'm always amazed at the creatvity and beauty out and about in the world of quilting.
Hope you can stop by her blog and partake of some of the yumminess!
Way back at the end of September, I made a Baby Swoon Block and fell in love with the pattern.
September 29th to be exact.
Today is February 24th and I just finished sashing the yellow and purple blocks.
I finished piecing eight strips to sash the blocks this week while watching "Pride and Prejudice" the BBC version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.
Shoulder slump. Relaxed pose. Eyes closed.
Time to piece the blocks together.
The stars are aligned.
Much chocolate has been sacrificed and much (too much) caffeine has been consumed.
Lifting. (this thing is heavy!)
Seams matched perfectly.
Okay. That was a lot of tension and work, wasn't it!
Here it is. Still needing a sashing of white all the way around...but all the Scrappy Swoon Blocks are sewn together.
(many, manly thanks to the oldest and nextest for helping and daring life and limb for this shot!)
(does this mean I get to start a Granny Square mini-quilt because I was so very good and got this put together?)
