Swoon Quilt



It doesn't show in the picture but I have the stopper border attached using the same fabric as the background. The Swoon quilt is almost finished....woohoo.  I picked a outer border last week and still need to add that. This has got to be my favourite quilt.

Now if this cough would just go away, I would have more energy for sewing. Not sleeping well at night really takes it out of you.

That's my daughter's dog Fonz with his toy monkey. He's sure likes his toys. Leah doesn't let me take the toys on walks anymore, I remember how cute Fonz looked walking down the street with Sponge Bob's legs danging from his month.

Happy Quilting.

Love your Swoon! Haven't seen any with a border so I will be watching. I maybe should have added one.

Everybody needs somebody to love - even Fonz! Love how the quilt has turned out so far. At least Fonz doesn't need to carry a 'blankie' in his mouth.

So nice! Really looks good on that green background (our spring is so slow, so I'm green with envy)
Try Nim Joim (sp?) for your cough. It is natural, Chinese, and really works. Our grocery store even carries it.

It's wonderful Wendy! I had to laugh at the monkey your daughter's dog loves..our golden retriever was gifted with one when she first came home with us as a pup. She finally had it so goobered up I needed to purchase a new one. So sorry your cough is lingering so long. It is very tiresome I know. Feel better soon.

It's beautiful!! I can see why it will be your favorite...

Sue-Anne said...

I love this quilt! I love your fabric choices and I think I might have to order the pattern for myself. Fonz is gorgeous and I think he would look very cute walking along with somebody's legs hanging out of his mouth. Hope you are feeling better soon.
