Do you ever have a day (or weekend) where you have a giant To Do List, but you just want to work on something else?! Well, this was one of those weekends! I have a million things that I should be sewing, but instead I swooned! It all started at Linderella’s; I saw the gorgeous Winter’s Lane.
I am just really in love with this line! I almost never make things from just one line. I love mixing fabric too much. But I knew I had to have an all Winter’s Lane quilt!! So I decided to Swoon:) I’ve made plenty of swoon blocks, but I don’t have a swoon quilt…yet! So I cut!
And cut some more! These are the nine pairings I chose. Each swoon uses two fabrics. I chose Kona Snow for my background. LOVE!
Swoon is mostly HSTs (half square triangles) and flying geese. I started to dream of a trimming fairy about halfway though the stack of HSTs. A pressing fairy would be nice too!
I used the bloc loc and I’d estimate it cut my time in half…if not more. You don’t even have to look; it just locks in. Everytime.
I also used the bloc loc for flying geese. Equally amazing!!
I love pretty trimmings! I save them for packages.
I’ve finished all the HSTs and flying goose units. (I stole the phrase “flying goose units” from the bloc loc video. Is that what they’re called? I have no idea, but I like it! So that’s what they’re called now!!)
And I’ve pieced together the first block!!
I must return to my list for now, but it was a great break!! And quite productive! I think this quilt will be mine. Only eight more to go!
