Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

Swoon block 6,7,8 and 9

Swoon only requires nine blocks, so you would think I was done, but no....I absolutely hate one of the blocks that I made, so I have cut out another one to replace it.  Ran out of time today, so hopefully I can put it together tomorrow night or the next day. 

The block that I don't like didn't have enough contrast from the star and the background. 

So my thought is I am going to applique a red heart in the center of the star and sew this up as a NICU quilt and donate it.  I think that might just work.  

I will update you on the replacement block and then it shouldn't be long before I have a completed top. 

Feels good!!!


  1. That sure is coming along quickly!
    So pretty!

  2. Oh this is going to look so pretty when all the blocks are together.

  3. Love it. I am still on block 4 and I started a long time ago!

  4. All of these blocks are gorgeous!
    This is going to be a beautiful quilt!

  5. Really like your combinations with this wonderful quilt pattern. Any word on that Cherry Tree Quilt? Bet you are on pins and needles!
