3 down, 6 to go

swoon blocks one, two, and three hanging up on my design wall.  this will be going to someone special that i know but can't say her name yet just in case she's reading this.  i hope she likes it!  i mentioned before in this post how i prefer directional prints to go in the same direction in swoon blocks, but this time i let that slide and am enjoying the wildness of it.   i'm getting all crazy on you guys.  watch out.

i also finished up my quilt top featuring every print in every colorway of Minimalista by Art Gallery Fabrics.  this photo just makes me laugh, and i shared it last night on instagram [follow along here if you like.  i am private, but just select request]  for some reason, this photo reminds me of the shirtless men and spicy burrito quilt calendars.  [but i am fully dressed for anyone concerned. ha!]

hope you had a fabulous weekend and enjoy the start of a new week with new possibilities and beginnings!

  1. I just love your blocks - and how the look of the block changes so dramatically when you change up the colors! Thanks for sharing your sexy burrito picture too :)

  2. I have 2 Swoon blocks sewn waiting, and 2 more blocks cut out waiting to be sewn, just keep getting sidetracked with other projects. Every time I see a post like yours I am reminded to go back to it

    Loving those Swoon blocks. Just finished one for the center of a quilt top, using French General fabrics - love it!! And, now I'm sewing my wonky triangle strips, heading for a zip pouch with a strip in the side - love them, too. Your projects are wonderful to see, and you're adorable!

  4. I am so laughing now! Love the Swoon blocks, looking good:)

  5. LMAO!!!! I didnt make the connection until you said it! Get it! So happy to see you are swooning!

  6. Oh my gosh, that calendar.
