W.I.P. Wednesday {1.15.13}

The snow has started to melt away around here and we are back to our normal routine.  I can’t remember a time when schools were closed for an entire week!  We are all glad to be back at school and work (and I have an even deeper respect for stay at home moms!!)

I was able to piece the last two Swoon blocks in the evenings.

Block 9

And this weekend (after much deliberation on the layout) I pieced together my first quilt top of 2014!  This isn’t the best photo because it was dark outside when I finally finished and it’s not easy to get a full shot of this big guy.

What are you working on during these cold weather days?

  1. Those blocks are lovely! Good fabric choices. What are we doing these cold days you ask! We have a record breaking heat wave with 46C today and many fires raging in the state. Air con on and busy quilting a UFO!!

  2. I love the red block especially – it just pops. Beautiful quilt. I, too, want to make a swoon quilt soon – deciding on fabrics is the hard part.
    I’ve been working on gift quilts so far this month.

  3. Wow Amanda,
    you are really an inspiration. If only I could do all that piecing! You are soo lucky to have snow. Here we haven’t had anything real at my level 500 metres above sea level. So I have only been able to see it from a distance.
