I worked on a couple more Swoon blocks...I just love the contrast in this one...it's one of my favorites!
But I love this block, too. It doesn't have the bold, striking contrast of the first block, but there is definitely enough contrast in this block to "make it work."
I have 5 blocks finished now (2 more are cut and ready to sew, yay!). You can kind of see how big they are...these are laid out on a full-sized bed! I love how the blocks are looking together; it's fun to see this quilt turning out exactly how I imagined it would. I think the perfect way to finish this quilt will be a scrappy binding made from left-overs!
I worked on this weeks Farmer's Wife blocks too. Talk about contrast...I'd forgotten how small the Farmer's Wife blocks really are!
This is block #54, Kitchen Woodbox. I had a lot of fun with this one! My friend Lori shares her method for making this block here.
And this is block #10, Bowtie. Another simple block.
Here are the Fig Tree versions...
And Bowtie. The plan today is to make two more "Swoon" blocks and cut out the remaining two. I'm really trying to hold onto these last days of summer...before everything gets crazy busy again! Thanks so much for stopping by!
