My habit of not letting a project sit around long is continuing. I embarked on my Swoon quilt a week ago, and as of this afternoon, I have six finished blocks and four half finished blocks - which essentially means I am almost 3/4 of the way done! Hoorah!
My body is not shouting Hoorah however. This chain piecing and assembling really does take it out on your body. Oh and not to mention the hours spent at the iron, pressing HST's and geese! But oh well, I'm pretty damn impressed with my progress......
I've managed to fussy cut quite a few of the centre blocks, but I am using fat quarters, and it gets a bit tricky trying to get all the pieces required cut, and managing to leave a 6.5" block of perfection!
Now, given that this will be the first queen size quilt I have made, I am wondering how I am going to quilt it, or if I will even be able to manage it? I have a beautiful Bernina, however, I already wrestle with single bed quilts, so thinking my muscles may not be up for the challenge. I've discussed it a little with the lovely quilters in QCA, and have been told to look up Quilt as You go. Which I still haven't! The other option is sending the quilt off when it's finished to be quilts by a long arm. Still a little bit of time to decide, but I am open to suggestions - so fire away!
apologising warning you now - you will see many a blog post from here onwards until this quilt is finished!
I'm linking up with W.I.P. Wednesday - You can too!
