A Completed Swoon!!! (27)

You may recall back at the beginning of the month
in this post
I set a goal for January,
to Finish my Swoon quilt

Well here it is

I am SO happy with it now that it is complete!!

I quilted it on my home machine
(before I got my new one)

I just did the outline of each Flower or Star
(what ever you call them)
then added an x across the block and 
stitched around each square.

It lives in our living room
and there is plenty of room for 2 to cuddle on those cold winter nights

I backed it with cozy micro fleece!!


A little behind the scenes here,
Normally I take my quilt outside to photograph them
but today we are experiencing  a nice Saskatchewan
winter day, complete with 70 KM/Hour winds and lots of blowing snow

So I do the next best thing, go to my entryway where there is still lots of natural light 
and enough room for a big quilt

This is usually my hanging crew
my hubby and my big dude

Happy Sunday
Stay warm
I am typing this from the warmth of my bed
as I seem to have come down with the flu :(

Really glad you did it!

It's lovely! I love brown and blue, my bedroom is in those colours. And I really must do a quilt with a fleece back, sound delightful.

And congrats on your daughter turning 18! My eldest son just had his 18th last month. I feel like *I* was that age just a short time ago...!
