I bought 100% unbleached linen. I like the way it looks – sort of a solid but not really… with the natural fiber creating subtle bits of texture and color. And I love the way washed linen feels.
I washed it, pressed it, and decided to make another Swoon block. One block begat another, and away we went!
I guess I didn’t get enough of making half square triangles and flying geese with the first Swoon quilt. (Check out lots of great pictures of this block being made on Flickr!)
I’ll write more about sewing with linen and post more pictures of the linen blocks when it’s a bit less damp outside. I want to shoot pictures of the blocks without them getting soggy.
