I’m in a Swoon . . .
Encouraging words of the day.
Shout to the LORD, all the earth; break out in praise and sing for joy! ~ Psalm 98:4, NLT
Ok. What have I been doing? Catching-up and wrapping-up and starting-up, that’s what. I’ve finally finished a couple of mini quilts. True, they don’t have to be mailed until mid-March but I wanted to finish them up so I could start “swooning.” Yes, I’m all into the “hoopla” with the Swoon Block I bought my pattern and spent all day finishing my mini quilts, then choosing the fabric and then cutting the pieces for my first Swoon block.
Here are little peeks at my mini quilts. One is off to Australia and the other is off to California. One is for the “Name Game” swap sponsored by "Samelia's Mum." The other is for the "New-Beginnings Mini-Quilt Swap.”
This one is for the "Name Game" so I've covered the name up. Maybe you can notice the little tiny piece of thread being used to sew the name on. BTW, that thread is part of the sampler.
This is the "12 Days of Christmas" found at "Temecula Quilt Co." I just fell in love with this little sampler and will probably make one of Christmas fabric for myself. Notice that the first block is made of 1 piece, the second of 2 pieces and so on.
This is a photo of my laid-out Swoon pieces. I’ll start sewing them together today.
I can hardly wait to keep going. Or sewing...
