I posted a few days back about getting things finished up in 2014
Funny how that very day
I was asked to make 2 other quilts and 2 days later a 3rd quilt was added to that list!!
I can see my projects are going to get put to the back burner
that is why I love to make quilts,
for others to enjoy them
I managed to get my Swoon
Now I have to be honest
I started my first swoon block, way back in about May or June
and that single lonely block sat on my wall for months
It was then joined by a second,
and they sat for a few more months
I made 2 more blocks...
The more blocks I made the less I liked the idea of this
blue and brown quilt.
Maybe I would just use the blocks individually
as table toppers on the living room end tables....
Maybe I would just make a 4 block small lap Swoon....
Then came the day my hubby asked for a quilt
that was big enough for him from his toes to his nose, with a little extra room
for me to be able cuddle with him on the couch
ok, ok I will keep adding to my swoon to make it the 9 blocks like the pattern
I even said to him
"I honestly don't LOVE this quilt, I love every quilt I make,
I am sad that some don't live here with me anymore even,
but I cannot make myself love this Swoon
That being said, I still had to finish it
that is when the magic happened
With each piece of sashing I added to these blocks
I began to like them more and more
Until I now LOVE this quilt top!!
I have not decided how this will get quilted,
weather to send it out to my Long Arm lady,
or weather to rent and learn to use the Long Arm machine at my local quilt store
or weather to just suck it up and quilt it on my home machine
I do hope to get Swoon completely finished soon,
but like I said, I have a few other projects that have time lines
