A few works in progress

It has been slow around here for sure. We've had a ton of fun things going on; a family trip, kindergarten graduation, all of the end of the school year madness, kids home from school now; as well as some not so fun things (that I won't even mention). Not only has it been slow here, but it's been pretty slow in my sewing room as well. I finally got a little sewing time last night and it was a blast.
I'm working on a baby quilt, actually two baby quilts. A boy version and a girl version of a pattern that I kinda made up on my own. It's actually pretty simple, so don't be too impressed.

Also, I finally started my Swoon quilt! I am so excited for this first block that I just finished. I've had the pattern and the fabric for a while now, but I have been putting it off. I shouldn't have though because it wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be. So yay!!  I might not sleep for a week now so I can finish it up, but hey, it will sure be worth it.
 I knew the swoon blocks were big but once I put the blocks up next to each other I realized exactly how big. You can see just how huge the swoon block is. It measures 24 inches square. The smaller block was made with charm packs so that gives you an even better idea of the size. 
I have a hard time just sticking to one project at a time but I really am trying to get these done so I can have some fun finishes to show soon. Am I the only one who skips from project to project before finishing them?

Yay for a Swoon quilt! I really have enjoyed that block!

Oh those blocks are going to make some lovely quilts. I definitely swap and change my projects, especially if I get stuck one part of a quilt - I take the path of least resistance :)

Cute star block! Isn't Swoon so fun to sew? Glad you finally started and are enjoying it.

Such pretty blocks for the quilts you're making.

Wow. I had no idea how large a Swoon block finishes at! You'll have a quilt top in no time. lol

Happy stitching!
