Swoon Along 2013
Andee at The Modern Diary, I found Sarah from Fairy Face Designs who is hosting a Swoon Quilt Along. Since I didn't get in until the very end of the last one, I decided I need to participate in order to get this quilt top done. I pulled up the blocks I made:
My first one in March 2012, I decided I didn't like it. the pink was too much.
The 2nd one made at a Swoon Along party with friends in June 2012. Gaila who hosted the party is already done with her quilt.
In October 2012, when I didn't have a designated quilting space, I cut up kits for the remaining 6 blocks, which are still not sewn!
I did make the orange and aqua ones in October 2012, but that is the last time I worked on it. I pulled them out to take to retreat, but never started. In the mean time I have made a large scrappy Swoon top.
It's time to get back at these blocks. I'm going to challenge myself to make one every 2 weeks. Hopefully I'll get back in the groove and get them done. What's holding me back? I'm making the HST's using the Lazy Flying Geese Ruler and it takes a little thinking on my part.Once I get going, it's much easier to make the FG that way, but I do have to concentrate a bit. I'm going to shoot for Oct. having all the blocks made and ready to put together at Fall retreat. That's my goal and I'm sticking to it! I might have to get my co-conspirator in quilting Emilee to join me as we started this together.
