Back to work! Back to work!

These ladies aren't exactly Gru, but knowing they're hosting linky parties helps keep me motivated!
LOL
 
 
I had several questions about the Swoon quilt I'm working on right now.  I love the Swoon blocks I see all over the internet.  My obsession began in September of 2011.
Wow!  It's been almost two years since I started this quilt top.
 
 
I had a hard time choosing a color scheme and once again, let scraps be my choice.  Each center block is a fussy cut flower or group of flowers.  I had great ambitions of making three more blocks for a larger quilt.
~Sigh~
However, I decided to take the orange and purple blocks off and use the green, yellow, pink and blue ones for a lap quilt.  A WIP that will soon be finished and two blocks I can use for table quilts, wall hangings or pillows.
 
 
Here it is last week, spray basted.  I'm combining machine and hand quilting on it.
Loving the look!
 
I have a finish for the week too.
 
 
My first "Patchwork of the Crosses" aka "Lucy Boston" EPP (English Paper Piecing) block.
Ta Da!
 
A soccer mom project for sure!
 
 
(Baby Swoon...lol)
 
Don't forget to check out what everyone else is doing this week!  So much creativity, encouragement and inspiration!
