Swoon Progress




didn't make a design wall post yesterday because there was nothing on the wall to show then. I have been working away on my Swoon UFO to cut all the sashing and binding strips, and trim down the 9 blocks to 24.5".

And finally, here is the first row of 3 connected blocks pinned to the design wall. I am attaching the sashings by machine to the front and back of the quilted blocks, and then stitching the last joining seam on the back by hand (tutorial here). It's a slow process, but I am enjoying it!

  2. I like the way its going together for you. Are these three blocks already joined? I don't see the sashing or is that to come.

  4. Your blocks look great!! I've used this method of QAYG before and thought it turned out well.
