Caught the Swoon Bug


I caught the bug.  The Swoon bug.  I have been drooling over this pattern since it was released and this past week I went shopping at The Fat Quarter Shop and just seconds later there was the pattern in my in box.  It was  almost too easy! Katy over at I'm Ginger Monkey is hosting a casual Swoon-along.  I joined.  I couldn't not.  Who could resist these giant 24.5" blocks?

My plan is to turn this fabric mess into Swoon blocks.

These are mostly samples from the "buy/by the pound sale" last summer.  Some how with some solid white and some stash and scraps, it will become a quilt.  Stay posted.  I will have the first block up for a viewing tomorrow.  I have to say that blocks of this size are fabulous!

Daughter and her special someone are back with great sun tans and piles of stories.  Even though our baby is a grown up, it still feels so much better to have her back on Canadian soil in one piece.  Even better is seeing them snoozing under the wonky scrappy star quilt on the couch as we speak.   Have a super lovely day.  My fingers are crossed for a snow day tomorrow!
