Swooning to the finish line

and over I go!

Yep, it feels like it has taken me forever 
but at last I am calling my 
Swoon Quilt 
finished.


It is now safely on my bed and everyone has been warned, 
all that white and all,
 as I don't want to be washing it too often.


Quilt Stats
Swoon  by Camille Roskelley
 of Thimble Blossoms
80" Square


One thing holding me up on finishing this one was the binding.
In the end I went with the same fabric as the backing.


It is so rewarding to take a pile of fabric from this


to this.


Now to add some cushions to my "to-do" list.

  15. *swoon*, Sharon, it's GORgeous!!! Just beautiful! You've just reminded me that I am still procrastinating with binding my Swoon. :/ I should probably get on that, as it might take me ten years to do it once I start. I had also planned on using the same fabric as the backing. The quilting on yours is just amazing, too! Wow. :) Great accomplishment! xo
