Work In Progress : Swoon Quilt


Just popping in to show you what am I up to... something fun and quick for a large size quilt.

Like I told you before in the previous post, I have enough of throw quilts. Not that I am not a fan, but I feel more love and feel more satisfied with large quilt that can be put on my bed. It is a bit of a hard work, especially quilting it, but the satisfaction...aaah. I love my scrappy trip quilt just to note. That is the only one that is large enough to cover my bed. Others, like the Jack Attack quilt, or the Happy-go lucky quilt is just tad bit too small. They are a single size quilt, but I lay them on the bed anyway.

Swoon Quilt Prep

So, here goes to the first of many to come again bed quilts. Starting with Swoon! I know most of you are familiar with this quilt by Thimbleblossoms. It's quick and fast - each block itself measures 24"!. I am making nine blocks with a large printed border.

Putting in many of my all-time favourite fabrics in. Some Anna Maria Horner's, Art Gallery Fabrics, and Kona White.

If you follow me on Instagram here, you get faster updates, but I still love to blog and I love reading blogs, so hopefully it won't be too quite around here. However though, can't deny that I love Instagram!!! It is a bit addictive. Say Hi over on my Instagram if you find me there! Here is one pic from my Instagram - the nine blocks all done!

I have finish all nine blocks and got all of them pieced together with sashing. Still need to do the border to extend the quilt size and I will most probably piece the backing too. Can't wait to quilt this soon. I am planning to share some quilting tips or free motion quilting tutorial some time soon.

Linking to W.I.P Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and also at Needle and Thread.

Till then,
