A Quick Project


Sometimes, one needs to do a quick project because closure is a good thing!  So, this weekend, I made a table runner from soft neutrals that are supposed to resemble beach sand.


I had enough to make a matching table topper too.


Finishes are good for the creative soul!

Swoon Block #1


After cutting out the two FQs for the first Swoon block...


...I read thru the assembly instructions again and then tackled sewing everything together.   Let's say I learned a lot.


Hopefully, assembly will go more smoothly for the second block.

Off on a Swoon Adventure!


I've never liked the cutting-out part of any project whether it be something for someone to wear or cutting multiple pieces at one time for a quilt.  But for this Swoon project, there was no way to get around the amount of white background fabric that needs to be cut... so I bit the bullet and got it done.


In this photo, there are 234 squares/rectangles and 18 WOF sashing strips.  The prints I can cut as I make blocks but the white is ready to go.   Yea, me!
