Since the summery picture above (did we REALLY have grass out there?! It's now under 3 feet of snow and ice) I added a border in October. (And bear with my iPhone pictures below...for some reason I can't seem to manage pulling out the real camera until the quilt is done).
Finally, after a monster basting job which used up all my pins and all my floor space...I am quilting! I am using heavier threads, such as DMC perle cottons in size 8, and Aurifil in size 12, in a variety of colours and I'm liking it so far!
The blocks have all finished at 16.25" square, a reduction from the pattern's original 24". If you haven't come across this pattern yet, it's Swoon by Camille Roskelley and can be found here.
For more Swoon inspiration, be sure to look at the Flickr groups of fellow Swooners. And again, join us, won't you?
