June UFO

I decided to put last month's project away for a little breather, and go back to working on the previous month's project. I am trying not to focus on the fact that neither of these quilts are finished, and UFO goals have not been reached for a long time! Instead I am going to focus on the progress that has been made, and keep trying.
Swoon is back. 
I have been working on it a lot this year (piecing and quilting these blocks) and perhaps if I really focus on it this month, maybe it could be a finished quilt?
Here are all the quilted blocks laid out on the floor.
I have moved them around a hundred times. I'm not sure if this is the final layout or not, but I can start trimming the blocks and cutting the sashing strips and preparing to join them in "Quilt-as-you-go" fashion (tutorial here).
I am optimistically linking up to June's sign up for One Monthly Goal.

  2. You are not alone with moving things around. When I am no longer interested in something, I put it away for a while. Then at a later date I see it in a pile and have renewed interest.

  9. Hi there! Will be great! I am good at layout, can I make a few suggestions? Looking at the picture as a 1-9 grid, I would switch #3 and 9. Then you have a dark row diagonal and a light row the other

  10. Diagonal. Then switch #2 and 6. Then yellows will be balanced horizontally. Will be great, I wish I was as brave to do the Swoon bolock! Take care, Leslie

  13. Imagine my surprise when I received an email from my guild president asking us to look at your blog and the Swoon blocks. She likes them and was wondering if they could be part of next year's program somehow. You are in the big time now. Wonder if they would like you to come to the guild...I might have a connection...right Kathy!
