Hi, I've been up to more sewing. Actually, I finished these last three Swoon blocks in one week. I've been hand quilting it for the last two weeks, and finishing up on the binding today.
Swoon Block 7
Block 7 is not my favorite. I don't think this large gingham print is that great for piecing, but from afar blended into the quilt top, it's not bad. If I had more time to make another block, I probably would have replaced it.
Block 8 is probably one of my favorite combinations. Reminds me of seaglass.
Swoon Block 9
All along I've been planning this block for the center. Remember when originally I bought this Alexander Henry print from Joann's on accident thinking it was part of the Picnic & Fairgrounds collection? Silly me:D However the colors compliment each other so well, so I decided to use it in the quilt. I just love how the red rooster gets center stage.
After much thought and prayer I've decided to donate this quilt to a silent auction benefit for my girl friend Kelly who has been fighting breast cancer. This weekend is her benefit. Sadly I wont be able to attend because of a family graduate celebration. But I hope it brings much needed funds her way.
Finished quilt photos soon to come.
