I’m behind on the Blogger’s Quilt A Long – my first quilt a long. I’m thinking that maybe I’m not cut out for quilt-a-longs. (Quilting in the Piecedgoods Home Office happens in fits and starts. Sometimes the fits and starts become finished things. Sometimes they become Un-Finished Objects (UFO’s))
Despite the number of UFO’s guilt tripping me from the closet and design wall, I was working away today on this quilt block called Swoon, and I decide to take a break from sewing. What turns up but the start of the Swoon along?
Is it cheating to join a quilt a long and say I’m quilting a long if I’ve done the piecing? Refer again to sentence #2 in this post.
I decided to join anyway. I loved making these big Swoony blossomy blocks and it’ll be fun to see what fabrics everyone picks to do these blocks. I could easily be inspired to make more of them.
Having made 10 so far in a frenzy of sewing (Frenzies are a subset of Fit and Starts) I’ve become much more efficient at making the 24″ blocks.
Here’s my one comment about the blocks:
I like the blocks using 3 different fabrics better than two (I’m not counting the background color as a fabric here)
The pattern is written for the outside contrast points to be the same fabric as the inside star, but I changed it up for some of my blocks and I like the contrasted ones better.
The dog agrees.
