Swooning Along

I finally got back into my sewing room and did some damage! 
 I needed to get some (or all) of the rest of the blocks for my Swoon quilt and I was on a mission!!!  
I did get the other 5 blocks finished. 
 So now I have all 9 blocks finished and ready to put together!!!! 
 Yeah, go me!!






This week I will try to work on getting these set into a quilt top.  
I have an idea for a border too but I might need some additional navy for it.  

Here is an example of how it might look all put together


Thanks everyone, for all your well wishes on my recovering health! 
 I am getting better and will be back at work today, even though I am still coughing. 
 How was your weekend?

I am linking up to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday list.  
If you haven't stopped by her blog you really should!
She is also doing a Bloom Bloom Pow QAL that I am trying desperately to resist.
I think, as the Borg say, "Resistance is futile"!

Glad you are felling well enough to sew again. I love the colors you used in your Swoon. It has such a crisp, clean summer feel to it. I can't wait to see it finished. I have loved everyone I have seen. Took me over a year to finish mine and I love it.

I love your navy and yellow blocks. Blue and yellow seem a lovely combination to me, but then I have no idea what a Spartan is! (Apart from a very stoical ancient chap, I mean.)

Congratulations from a fellow swooner. I started when the swoonalong started over a year ago... and have only just got my top together. It was a mission. I love your fabric choices - I am waiting for some backing fabric to come into stock, so have been thinking about quilting options. Have you decided how you are going to quilt yours?
