I have some great-nephews that aren’t such babies anymore still waiting on baby quilts from G-Auntie J.  One is done and delivered!

Accuquilt 12″ die pattern called Windmill.  Speed cutting and easy piecing.

This border fabric begged for mitered corners!

Then I played with the quilting.  A variegated yellow-ish thread was fun!

I planned to open June with my own personal quilt retreat.  Free, my timing, no carrying of supplies and machine, my own bed, my own food, but it was quiet without girlfriends!  I tried to plan out easy meals but that didn’t go so well and of course, I still had to do dishes!  I did make chocolate cake the day before so I kept the bit of chocolate/treats idea.

I started Friday after supper and got in some arranging of the sewing rooms, got my AccuQuilt Go! Cutter, planned my pattern with EQ7, and got out my fabrics.

On Saturday, I cut fabrics for one block and pieced it.  This Swoon block is 24″ finished.  Huge!!  This will be fun to quilt when I get the top made.

On Sunday, I took it slow but made a 3rd Swoon block.  I also cut fabrics for 2 more blocks.  For now, my goal is 6 blocks for a throw size.  I also might add a pieced border to make it a bit wider.  Yet to be determined.  I’ll let you know when I get farther down the road.
