First Friday of February

January flew by!  I'm starting to see signs of longer days as the sun is setting later.  My sewing room has been pretty busy.  I've been staying organized using my Quilters Planner.  Each week has been inspired by the quilt blocks featured in the month of January.  I've completed three so far, but got side tracked by a new project, my first Swoon quilt.

This last block I finished in January was a challenge.  I'm not confident in paper piecing yet, but Cassandra's directions were great.  So if you haven't tried this one yet, dive in.  The end result is worth it!

There are more January blocks in my planner, but who can resist a Swoon-a-long when February is here?  Thimble Blossoms had a special on this pattern recently, and I've always wanted to try it!

Block #1

Block #2

Block #3

I love these super-sized quilt blocks! They are all over instagram if you are interested in seeing these pretty blocks in abundance!

Thank you for spending some time on my blog!
