Fabric Tuesday!

It can't be a week since I last posted! I've been sewing, but there doesn't seem to be much done. How did that happen?

I should be doing only Christmas projects, but instead I've completed another two Swoon blocks.

The second block was done twice, because I didn't have enough contrast between the fabrics. That's the challenge of this block for me, and I don't seem to be able to tell early in the cutting if I like it or not. I like my main patterned fabric, the trick is getting enough of a solid for it to shine against, and guess what? I've ordered some more possibles!

Here's a work in progress

It's got to be trimmed and bound. I like it, hope others will too!

Still in the works: (and due by Christmas)

mini quilts for gifts
dress for my younger GD (I've been putting it off, zip, lining, Oh help!)

Hope you are progressing faster than me!
