WIP Wednesday: Falling Hard for Swoon Blocks!

Shhh. Don't tell on me, but I actually got some sewing done. Yesterday was my non-birthday day this week. Today is the last birthday, but I had to do some patch sewing for my new little cub scout.

Okay, I bagged it and bought the Badge Magic, which was so much easier! Badge Magic is your friend!

But then I figured I was already in the sewing room, and I should get something done. And done I did!

No, I haven't neglected my string quilt. Got it all pieced together with the sashing and the first white border. But honestly, even I'm getting bored looking at it. I won't do that to you! Once I get the red border and the last white border, you'll get a finished flimsy. I might even iron it!

No, my WIP today is this:

I'm late to the party (story of my life), but I. LOVE. THESE. BLOCKS. I'm using Scrumptious prints paired with the Scrumptious solids and I can't wait to do more!

Seriously. How awesome are they?

I'm also working on some fun stuff.

Sorting scraps for Scrappy Sundays. Read more about it here. Jennifer got a head start because she doesn't have three kids' birthdays this week! I'm playing catch up (story of my life), but I don't mind. It's not a race.

I need another WIP like I need, well, another WIP. But this one is going to be ongoing until it's the size I want it to be. And frankly, I want some space back in my house!

Linking up! See you Friday - I have another finish for you!

  6. Swoooooooon! Love them too but whereas you were late arriving at the party, Jennie, I haven't even turned up! Fear the party will be over, the guests will have gone home and the clearing up will have begun before I get to join in with this one! Your swoon block is fabby. Looking forward to seeing your scrappy blocks ... as and when :)
