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!
