Just Checking In

Just checking in here as I have been sewing but not so regularly lately. So here's the Swoon update. I have completed three more blocks. I just love making these blocks! Plus I am getting to re-visit favorite fabrics in this scrappy quilt. I guess that's why I like scrap quilts.

And my friend RaNae at Ewe Creek Cottage sent me a gift! For no particular reason other than she is a great person and very generous. Now, she's not a quilter from what I know but she sure puts together a great quilter's gift. Thanks RaNae! I love it. 

Other that that, I have been enjoying New Hampshire and it's great weather this time of year. We have been at our lake cottage quite a bit and are thoroughly enjoying the sailboat we bought this spring. The next blog post should be a before and after of what we did with the cottage after we bought it. Not that dramatic but it sure made a difference in how we feel about the place. So hope you are having some happy summer weather too!

  1. I love how you made the center of the bottom right block a 4 patch. Great looking blocks!

  2. Hi I am not a quilter sewing is well I am a novice let me say that lol so I am glad u like your goodies. Your quilt blocks are soooooo beautiful I am so in awe.

  3. I love those blocks to date. July I hit the states to visit the kids and I hear there is a camping trip to New Hampshire in the offing.

  4. Your Swoon blocks are lovely. The different fabric choices almost make them look like different quilt block designs from each other. The first time you showed them, I had to look more closely. Really nice work!
    Happy summer at the cottage :-)

  5. Your swoon quilt is keeping me swooning. Where did you get/find the pattern, I think I wouldn't mind trying that pattern out someday. What a lovely gift from your friend, for not being a quilter she sure did a great job picking out things!! How is your health? Hope you are well and enjoying summer. Big Hugs!

  6. The Swoon blocks are coming along a treat. Look forward to the next batch. and what a wonderful gift bundle. Must be a lovely friend

  7. Your quilts/crafts are so fantastic! It's so nice to find other quilters all around the world!
    Hugs, Ulla (from Finland)

  8. Chris, your quilt is wonderful! I have never been to NH, but my son's former girlfriend is from Manchester. I'd love to go back to the East Coast someday!

    Enjoy your summer and happy 4th.



I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
