#swoon2013 – part 1


I am 1/3 of the way in my block progress. Well that is what I think as of right now. I think I need 30 blocks – 6 rows of 5 blocks. With sashing and all I think that will be plenty. We will see. I think when you see the following pictures you will agree.

First let’s talk about the fabric I am using. I am using all of Lori Holt‘s lines. From my knowledge I am using everything she has ever created in fabric form. I have the following lines: Sew Cherry, Daisy Cottage, Bake Sale, Millie’s Closet, and Polka Dot Stitches. I hope to add Gracie Girl in as soon as it comes out which is supposed to be in August. I love that all her lines work so well together.

Here are the 10 blocks all together:

They are playing well together don’t  you think? I am crossing lines in the blocks and you can’t even tell. here is a prime example of that:

This blocks has Sew Cherry (the floral) and Millie’s Closet in it. So lovely!!

Here are all the blocks laid out on my bed:

See how I think a 6 x 5 layout will work? What do you think? Well, plenty more blocks to sew but I think they will have to wait until next month as I have a ton more planned for this month….
