I started a new project this week - my swoon quilt! I got a fat quarter set of Pat Bravo's Hyperreal Garden a while back for my birthday with this quilt in mind... but now I'm starting to second guess that decision. There are a few directional prints in this line, and that doesn't appear to work to well for this quilt. Here's my first block:
I'm leaning towards switching to something different in my stash that doesn't have directional prints, or at least has enough non-directional prints to use in the quilt. What do you guys think?
I also started and completed some January blocks for two quilt-alongs. First up is the January HST quilt-along block:
I think this might be my most favorite block ever that I've made. I really love it! I'm using DS Quilts Sugar Creek for this quilt along with some Kona Snow.
I also made the two January blocks for the Craftsy Block of the Month (BOM) quilt-along:
They were definitely fun and easy to make. The prints are from Amy Butler's Lark line, with more Kona Snow (notice a trend?). I'm looking forward to next month for both of these quilt-alongs.
