I finally got to sit down and do some sewing last weekend, so I have some things to show you this week! I got some quilt-along blocks done as well, but in an attempt to avoid making this the longest post ever, I'll write about those separately. Here's some of what I did this week:

It's been a pretty busy week, so all I really got done was another swoon block. Hopefully this next week will be more productive!

Happy February everyone! After my mostly tragic start to my swoon quilt last week, I decided to start over with some new fabrics. I really am not in love with that block, so Hyperreal Garden is going to wait for a different project... I'm switching over to Ruby for Swoon!

Isn't this so much better? Lee over at Freshly Pieced commented last week that these blocks seem to work best when the prints have a strong contrast between each other and the background fabric, and she was definitely right. I've paired fat quarters together keeping this in mind, so hopefully the rest of my blocks will be just as pretty!

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.

I made some good progress on my scrap attack quilt this week, and it's starting to look pretty awesome! There's some cross-stitch progress this week as well. Cross-stitch is perfect for when you're tired and don't want to keep getting up between the sewing machine and ironing board. :)
