My Swoon Quilt is Finished, Ta Da!

     I'm very happy to share that I finally finished my Swoon Quilt and here it is!




     Dwight and I took it out in the backyard to take a picture.  I'm holding the quilt.  It's 80' by 80" so I had to stand on a rock to get the whole quilt in. I was originally planning to quilt it myself but it's pretty big to handle with my sewing machine and in the end I sent it out to be quilted.  Here's a close up of the quilting.




     Another reason I sent it out is because I decided to put the Swoon quilt into our Guild show at the beginning of May.  This is my first finish for the 2nd Quarter of the 2015 finish along.  The original post is here.


     Look what we found out in the yard.  I guess Spring is finally here.



     I'm linking up to TGIFF which is hosted this week by Maartje Quilt In Amsterdam and at Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts .

  3. Hello, just visiting via Crazy Mom quilts. The colours of your fabrics are just like the crocus in my garden against a blue sky. I love the clever colour balance in the blocks too.

  8. Lisa, Congratulations on a fabulous finish. Gorgeous colors and your work is so neat.
    I have the same problem since I am 5'3" and many quilts are taller than me. I make Paul hold them and I take the picture.
    And thank you for your sweet comment on my Life's Embrace quilt.
