What’s better than starting one new project this week? Starting two! Yes, I’m *finally* jumping on the Swoon bandwagon. I’ve wanted to make one ever since I saw Angela’s Good Folks Swoon quilt. I knew the blocks were big. But I don’t think anything prepares you for the size until you actually make one.
I only get my yardstick out for 3 things:
1. Measuring those big Chicago snow storms.
2. Reaching toys the kids throw under our King sized bed.
3. Showing people how big a Swoon quilt block is. 24-1/2″!
I’m planning on mixing some prints from Avalon by Fig Tree & Co. with others from my stash. I actually haven’t picked all my fabrics yet, so there still may be a bit more ordering. I am using Kona Snow for my background. I’m not going to stress too much over a timeline for this one, but can’t wait to make more blocks and share my progress along the way.

This week I decided to pull out my Halloween quilt UFO. I had planned on getting this done before Fall….but what can I say? I’m motivated by a deadline. I started this one last October and was too late for Halloween, but not this year!
I paired Tula Pink’s Nightshade line with Kona Snow and Oakshott Cotton from the Lipari colorway. You can read more about the Oakshotts here. I’m using my Prism quilt pattern. It’s a really fun, quick paper pieced design. I can’t wait to get it quilted and on my couch!
A bit of a Lighthouse Quilt Along update. I spoke with Windham Fabrics and they would like me to wait to share the finished quilt on my blog until after Quilt Market when it is displayed in their booth. So! That is at the end of October, so the quilt along will start a month later than I was thinking. Hopefully you all will still be excited about it then!
