Swoon Block Quilt

  While on vacation this summer, I had the opportunity to quilt my 60″ Swoon Block.  I made the block/quilt in 2012.  Yes, this project was rocking some serious UFO status, until a couple weeks ago.   My mother-in-law has a 28″ Gammel.  That dude is heavy.  Really, heavy when you consider I’m generally sewing on a 9″ Juki on a...

I opted to sew all my scraps together in color families.  I made the finished “Made-Fabric” pieces any size.  Really, whatever size...

  Funny because it is ironic.  =) I think I’m going to hang it in my office.   I first saw the: Always Plan Ahea d phrase online.  I think it was some graphic/typeface/font website where I found it.  It cracked me right up so, of course, I needed to make it in fabric. Gathered the scraps and set forth to make improv letters from the Word Play Quilts...

Every year we have a family reunion and with 8...
