I made a few Swoon blocks last fall & then my stack of fabric just sat. This is NOT an easy block to make, you have to be pretty precise in piecing & make sure you have a consistent 1/4" or else your blocks will just not line up right. Plus the blocks are huge! But then I saw Katy had started a Swoon-along on Flickr and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get this quilt done! I've already got all my white cut & just need to buckle down and do the remaining 7 blocks I have left to do. If you've been wanting to make a Swoon quilt, this is a great group of people to join in with & let motivate you!
I bought a ton of flannel when it was on sale a few months ago & want to make a nice & toasty warm quilt just for me. I'm always cold in our house (especially the basement) during winter & I need a snuggly quilt all my own. I've started cutting this pretty flannel up into big squares & am going to keep this quilt pretty simple so it can hopefully get done faster! ;]
I have an idea for what I want to do as my Tangerine Tango challenge quilt, I just need to sketch it out & see if I can figure out the math. If I can make it work right, I think I'm going to love the look of it! (Did you see that Ali posted about our prizes yesterday? We've got some great stuff up for grabs!)
I recently finished a small project that's going to be included in the next edition of Fat Quarterly (you can see a little sneak peek of it in this picture) & I've got another project in the works for a book collaboration I was asked to be a part of. (the sketch in the picture)
Here's to getting some stuff done in January!
