Swoon Two

The Swoon-along is a huge quiltalong and I look through the group's Flickr pool and drool every day. My own Swoon quilt is slow going to say the least. I loved how the first block came out but the cutting and cutting and cutting is boring to me. I l.o.v.e. the finished product though. Here is block #2:

It's Hope Valley for those keeping track. Here is block #1 and block #2 together:

I think my Swoon quilt is going to be four blocks instead of nine. I really don't have nine in me and honestly a 60"x60" quilt is much more my speed anyway. I use my quilts for hanging out on the grass with kids or snuggling on the couch.

In stash building news, I fell victim to the siren's call of Flea Market Fancy. Karen Gray has it in the shop and I truly love those gray seeds. I was going to just get a yard of those but those vintagey flowers were too tempting.

It's funny because I was never really into the hoarding craze of Flea Market Fancy scraps and leftovers but seeing it on the bolt in the shop made me a believer!

I guess there is a part of every project that just isn't as fun. For you it is cutting. For me, it is the ribbing at the top of every single sock.

They look great! My Swoon quilt is four blocks and it is the perfect size!

I am feeling sorely tempted by the Swoon!
I wasn't all that crazy about Flea Mkt fancy the first time around, but I love the leaves on gray and red, and that floral on the blue. May have to get a bit to play with!

lOVE THE SWOON BLOCKS! You are one up on me! I love FMF! Ive been saving up and got a yard of each from Karen on Friday.

Those are gorgeous! It's always interesting for me to see what other people find boring about quilting: I really, really enjoy quilting, but pressing blocks seems very tedious to me.

And although I don't really need it, I may cave and buy some of that grey seeds fabric, because it's just so cute!
