Design Wall Monday 07/09/12
I finally did some sewing this weekend! My friend Lori hosted a two-day sewing "retreat" at her beautiful home on Friday and Saturday. She was a wonderful hostess all around and served us a fabulous lunch each day. I decided to make the Swoon block that I've seen all over the blogs. I needed to make a mini quilt to protect the top of a short speaker we bought recently, so it wouldn't get scratched. I scaled down the block and made it 12" finished (shown below). I finished that one on Friday and liked it so much that I decided to make a larger version finishing at 20" on Saturday (shown above). The bigger one is still on my Design Wall, as I am not sure if I want to add something to it - maybe a pieced border. I only had fat quarters of the two prints, so I may not be able to do that as I don't have much fabric left over. On Sunday, I quilted and bound the 12" block. It is shown below in its place of honor on top of a speaker.
