I have had the large Swoon quilt pattern by Thimbleblossoms for a while now but am still undecided on which fabrics to use. So I thought some practice wouldn't hurt by doing a mini swoon quilt.
I raided my stash and came up with this combination of fabric. I purchased this dark grey fabric a while back but it was a little darker than I anticipated. I thought if I used lighter coloured fabrics then the 'swoon' pattern would show nicely.
Hubby has been in snowy Colorado for two weeks now and it has meant I can hole myself up in my sewing room when the kiddies are in bed without feeling guilty.
I also managed to do a little bit of Project Life
And I'm still going on my ABC block of the week / S is for stitch quilt.
Hubby is back tomorrow but unfortunately he missed our little girl's first day at school.
Summer holidays are now over. I will miss these days of going to the beach
and lovely summer nights
However, I'm more than happy to say goodbye to this extreme heat.
