This has been one of my more productive weeks. It started with the holiday and I found myself on a roll. I am really loving the Granny Square blocks. I need 20 and so far have these
I know they need to be trimmed into squares but I sew late in the evening after a full work day and thought it would probably be safer trimming them on the weekend. I need to finish 3 more blocks, hopefully tonight and sashing over the weekend.
Then the topper of the week, my Swoon quilt came back from the quilter. It's beautiful. I was surfing the Swoon along flicker spot when I came across a comment by Sarah Russett of Sweet Potatoe quilts,a Long Arm quilter from NY. She was looking for Swoon quilts to quilt at very reasonable rates. I thought about it for a little bit and then decided to email her. She was a pleasure to work with and the turn around was great.
The pictures don't do the quilting justice but it really looks wonderful. I will post the whole quilt after I get the binding on and we get some sun with no wind. At least a couple of weeks away.
If you are interested in getting in touch with Sarah her email is firstname.lastname@example.org . She is working at setting up a blog but I don't have that info yet.
