No more swooning but have a giveaway again!

I’ve been making the swoon blocks a lot lately and I finished the last of them recently!
(Ever since my vacation I’ve been able to schedule posts ahead of time- which is kind of nice!)
I couldn’t help myself with this background, hope she likes it Smile

Here the pink/coral was sort of a directional fabric but I was able to assemble it so they all face the same way.

These 4th of July blocks were probably the most fun to make, as all the other 14 blocks had white/beige backgrounds, here she just wanted patriotic colors and it didn’t matter what color went where, can’t wait to see the rest of the blocks!
2014-07-26 001
Laura has been visiting and doing the blocks too, here mine and one of hers together Smile
2014-07-25 003
I tried to make Laura’s blocks in secret, but sometimes it didn’t happen, but at least I picked out the fabrics first, or tried to, here she did pick the turquoise one.
2014-07-27 002
The last block was one where the star and diamonds were MY choice, so that was kind of fun too!
2014-07-27 003
Here’s all the blocks that I did.
all 16 blocks don’t even fit on the design wall!
2014-07-27 001
2014-07-27 004
The deadline is Sept 1st and it sounds like everyone is able to do it.
I’m glad mine are done, they were fun to make but 16 was a LOT!
I picked Christmas fabrics (one other person did too) but I don’t think I’ll make my own blocks, so I can just use the 16 blocks in a layout of 4 x 4 and maybe just add sashing and borders, we’ll see.
I came up with this layout in EQ7 it would be 82” x 82” when done with a 2” sashing and 4” border (each block is 2 x 4 in the border)
image
Sashing fabrics would be 1 5/8 or less
green in border would be 1yd
and red is 3/4yd
then plus binding (9 strips I think – 3/4yd)
What do you think??
comment if you are part of the swap and see your blocks – do/don’t like the blocks then I can re-make them.

I'm a follower. I just love a red/black/grey combo and this fabric looks wonderful. I think I'd start with a modern design wall hanging. Thanks so much for this giveaway!

Thanks for the chance to win! As I was scrolling through your swoon blocks I was thinking I really do need to make some-I have seen them all over the net and love them so maybe I would do just that if I won.

Jessibeth Vicenty said...

All your blocks look wonderful! I probably will try to do the swoon blocks, since I have never done them. I'm pretty new on this, but I love it. And the color combination is super nice too.

Laura Stutzman said...

Great job. Love the navy-blue/turquoise! :D Wish I was done with mine. I am only half way through.

Ok, now you've done it! I've been putting off making a Swoon quilt but after seeing all your blocks it's time to get started. Going to dig through the stash today and start cutting. I'm a follower on Bloglovin, FB and GFC.

I just love this swoon block! Great to experiment with color placement.

I am a follower. The blocks are great. The fabrics you are giving away would be used by me to make an Irish chain-type quilt, perhaps a modern version.

Your swoon blocks are beautiful! I would love to make a red and black purse, and this fabric would be perfect! So I'd start with that, and definitely make some quilt blocks with the leftovers. Thanks for the chance to win!

I am currently saving black and red fabrics for a quilt. This would go a long way toward my stash for that quilt.

I have enjoyed following you for several years now. I am amazed at all you get done as a young mother. I have designed a quilt to be made in black, white and reds these fabrics would be great for it.

Sarah said...

I follow you on bloglovin. I LOVE the swoon block, but I'm not sewing along right now, as I'm away from my sewing machine for the summer. I would probably make some things for my kitchen with this fabric; maybe an apron and matching oven mits/towels. Thanks! sarah@forrussia.org
