Well, even though last night was, well, interesting to say the least, this morning I am feeling a bit blessed. Literally. I have been trying to slowly go through the progress people have made on Lee's WiP Wednesday and twice now I have had very interesting letters to put in for the word verification. Once it said 'blessed' and just a few moments later another one said 'blessu'. Of course, I also had to type in 'dricing', but I like the idea that I was being sent a little message in the other two!
As far as quilting goes, I've got to do an office store run to get printer ink so I can make some more 1 inch templates. I also pulled out my Artful Home fabric I won from Ryan Walsh's site since I'm thinking about using it for a quilt for my bed. I was thinking about using it for a Swoon quilt, but I noticed that it called for 18 fat quarters. I knew I'd only won 12 different fabrics so I was trying to figure out if I could use some Kona solids with it or something. But I figured out something else instead. It was a half yard bundle. Duh! Shows how aware I am! So I have more than enough fabric, I just have to decide if Swoon is the way to go. Here's what it looks like:
There are blue-greens (a little more of a green teal in real life)...
And browns (with a black and white).
Do you think these fabrics would work for Swoon? I was looking at Debbie's two mini Swoon quilts and she used darker fabrics for hers.
My other question: would you use white as your solid? I was wondering about white or trying to locate that green that shows up in a lot of the fabrics. Hmmmmm.....
*Update: I found this block online that shows me that Swoon is basically a modified Carpenter's Wheel. So I drew both of them up on graph paper in the teal and red (kind of looks Christmas-y) to see which one I liked better. What do you think?
