I’ve been flipping back and forth between three projects for the past week or so. mel_is_a_swapaholic on Instagram is hosting #SwoonQAL2017 and I’m participating. I’m using the Swoon Sixteen pattern and the Boo! line from Cotton + Steel with Flax Essex linen as the background. I’m very proud of myself because I pulled all the fabric from my stash for once! 🙂 I did end up mis-cutting one of the fat quarters, so I did buy a replacement for that one.
I decided to do one big torture session and cut all the pieces at once. It was a lot of cutting! Here are all the pretty pieces nice and organized in a bin:
Before I started sewing, I divided up the pieces into blocks so I could be sure to separate out the similar colors and patterns. Here are my block sets:
I can’t wait to get started on the sewing! 🙂
