WIPs are progressing....

I turned in the very last of my last grades yesterday, and celebrated by making some more Bear Paw and Swoon blocks.

My dad does actually look at this blog, and with Father's Day approaching I am putting a moratorium on progress shots of his quilt.  He knows it's coming, he has seen the fabrics and the first set of blocks -- now I'm cutting him off!  No more sneak peeks for you, Pop!

But my Swoon quilt, on the other hand...that I can share.  I now have a total of 7 (of 9) giant blocks, and I love how it's shaping up.  It was far too windy to photograph these in my front yard, but I managed to get them to sit still on our tiny front porch.

Swoon 1, 2, and 3 Swoon 4, 5, 6, and 7

My favourite is one of the most recently pieced, and I think I'll place it at the very centre of the quilt: it's the one featuring the chocolate brown "bracelets" by Lizzy House and the gray "Prairie Rose" print from Hope Valley.

Ooooo, I love that one. That was fun!

But I'm going to have to face a reality check tomorrow, and get back to writing.

In the meantime, I hope all is well with you!  Bye for now.
