This blog is primarily about quilting & sewing but also incorporates a bit about my journey to a healthy lifestyle and my family. All of it will include a healthy bit of sarcasm, mostly at myself, but really, none one is safe!

Last Swoon blocks. Here's a taste of the top.
I've completed the last of the Swoon blocks and the pinwheels I will use for the border.
Chain piecing pinwheel blocks.
I don't know if this is the exact layout I'll put them in (except the center block), the pinwheels will have white between them and have them around the top as 3 borders (keeping the top clear of any extra border), and there will be white sashing in between each block but what do you think?
An indoor, at night photo doesn't do the colors justice but I think there is just the right mix of contrast and softness with the calico prints. I think I'm becoming a fan of calicos... many years of turning my nose up at them as a teenager when my mom collected them and look at me now. Perhaps mom had better taste than I gave her credit for. -wink-
