It's called the July Fourth block, and it's the 20th and last one. So this qal is coming to a close.
I'm up to 7 Swoon blocks and am aiming for 9. One block uses 2 fat quarters for the prints and probably another FQ for the background. I usually don't get more than one block made in a day. Has anyone else found that when they make this block?
Sunday was a good day for crocus hunting.
And some daffodils.
There are more out there but we still have snow and some are still covered, but I was happy to see them coming up.
One of the courses I have taken on Craftsy is Camille Roskelley's first one on using pre-cuts, and during it she shows how to make her Swoon block. I finally got around to making one and now I'm hooked. The block measures a hefty 24" square, so I think it's the biggest single block I've ever handled. I ended up using the Sunnyside fat quarters for this project. Not sure why it's called that since there are lots of clouds and raindrops, but I do like it.
I'm enjoying playing with the color values.
Spoiler Alert: If you are totally sick of snow and wintry weather, stop here.
We were not supposed to get a blizzard last night. The Cape and Islands were getting the blizzard. We had a heavy snow warning only. Lucky us.
Out my back stairs.
God bless the gentleman who used his snow blower to clear the stuff the city snow plow dumps in my driveway. I did the rest and am now resting wondering if I should start another Swoon. I also need some cookies, so I might do that instead.
