Design Wall Swoon #5
On the design wall today is Swoon block #5 fresh from being quilted. It even has that freshly quilted smell! HA! That's actually the smell of Best Press Spray (I spray the backing and iron well before basting as it seems to make the quilting movement a bit more slick). The full size blocks are enormous at 24", but of course I wanted to try a mini version.
I did sew one 8" block and enjoyed it, but it was a real challenge. Keep in mind that there are an unbelievable 90 pieces in this one block!
Then I saw over at February's finishing party link up at One Monthly Goal that there were three finished mini Swoon quilts! You have to see these amazing quilts made by Cindy, Tish, and Sandra. These 4 block quilts are less than 20" finished! I noticed that they have modified the piecing into units that would be easier to deal with than how I sewed it. Now I want to try another one using their block ideas!
The creativity compulsion never ends!
