Swoony Swoon

Well, my weekend was very productive, although I didn't accomplish everything on my list.
It's funny how you set out to accomplish certain things, and then distractions lead you in a new direction.
Or is that just me?

Swoon #3

Swoon was the main distraction for me this weekend.

I finished two blocks this weekend.
And I may have even started cutting for a third late last night... Maybe.

The first one, above, was made from a great Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush print and one from Josephine Kimberling's Just Dandy collection. And of course, I'm using Kona Medium Gray (or grey) for my background.

And the fourth block:

Swoon #4

This block might possibly be my favorite (although my first might be, too).

I just love this fabric combination. I used a favorite Metro Living print, but I'm not sure what the second fabric is. I purchased it from Fabricworm sometime last year, and there is no selvage.

I will probably not finish block #5 before I leave for Salt Lake, but these two lovelies will tide me over until I can get back to Swooning.
