Remember a while back (and yes, it’s been a while), I posted this picture of my prepped fabrics for my Swoon quilt? Well, I have good news. I used some of my long holiday weekend to actually start sewing the blocks, which I can honestly say, take longer than I had expected. there are a lot of pieces to put together, but the end result is absolutely worth it!
Here are some of my process pics from the first finished block. ”Swoon” is made up of mostly HST’s (half-square triangles) and flying geese blocks. So first I chain pieced all of the hst’s and pressed them open.
I continued piecing and pressing triangles and flying geese, and then putting them together to make 9 smaller blocks.
Then I combined all of the smaller blocks together, along with the square of patterned fabric to make one giant Swoon block! I love how huge this finished block is. Now I have to finish 8 more and then add some sashing. Stay tuned.
