swoon along update
(click on the photo to find out photo credits)
More and more finished quilts and quilt tops are popping up in the flickr group now. As well as new blocks daily. Not only new blocks but new piles of fabrics and new people signing up!
There has been a great deal of discussion on how to quilt the swoon quilt within the flickr group itself, some people opting for quilting each block before sashing, avoiding having to negotiate an 80" square quilt under a domestic sewing machine.
Angela Walters, who is quilting my swoon, has blogged about the many ways to quilt a swoon today with some really cool ideas on what you could do. If you don't read Angela's blog you should start - she's an incredibly talented quilter, and generous with how much of her process she shares. Monday's are part of her 'deciding what to quilt' series. Last week Lynne's tree quilt was featured. Honestly, I am pretty sure she just wants everyone in the world to love quilting as much she does and that is why she is so generous with her knowledge. (She also has a book coming out in June that will be a total must have).
What ideas do you have for quilting the swoon quilt?
