Yep, that's me. I'm a madwoman and I'm in da house. Ya got somethin' to say about that?
I thought not.
I put the Swoon blocks on hold for the moment and I'm working madly to finish a wall hanging for Valentine's Day.
You may wonder why but the simple truth is, I now have a wall to hang seasonal quilts on (think medium size, 50"x50") and I promised myself when we finally settled on a home, I would do this. Well, I started with the Christmas season and that is definately over. The hanging I currently have on the wall is seasonal, as in winter, but since we haven't had much of a winter, it's making it feel like a Christmas quilt instead. Do you remember this one?
L'Amour line by Sandy Gervaise and I certainly should use it.
I love the internet.
I did find what I was looking for. This tutorial from Katie's Quilting Corner is great and yes, it was super easy and quick to do. The top came together in a matter of an hour of sewing + another 30 min. trimming & ironing. Total.
I did leave out 10 strips of the roll and because of that, I think there were some closer repeats in the strips than there would have been. Also, I added the two large side borders to get the top to the width I wanted. I am really glad I did this. I like the look.
