Well, only took three days but finally finished the last block of Swoon late this afternoon. Still not lovin' it but when I lay them all out I thought it was OK. Soooo maybe when it's all sewn up I'll love it....let's hope so. The very first quilt that got me hooked on this obsession I just hated as I was sewing it but when it was finished I fell in love and haven't stopped making quilts since that day 20 years ago.

Well, got a few more blocks done on Swoon......have to keep pushing myself to do this. That will teach me not cut out everything before I start. So only have 2 blocks to do and they are all done. This is our last long weekend till October as much as I would like to sew something else I am going to push myself to finish this quilt.....who knows I make love it in the end!!!
Of all the blocks I like this one the best
Meant to place my different stripes opposite each other but in my hurry to get done I forgot. Oops.

Saw this a little while back on Jenny Doan's site and have been wanting to make one for ages. So when I should have been sewing Swoon I played around and made a little pouch. I didn't have any iron on wadding so did some straight line quilting instead. Made the piece pretty big so have enough for 2 pouches. The zip wasn't a huge success so hopefully I'll do better on the next. But it is cute.
Finished the Pink & Black a few weeks ago but forgot to post. I really love how it turned out and am wanting to make another sometime. Not sure if there is a bit too much pink but then it's a real happy quilt so hope it keeps my friend's spirit up while she is recovering.
