Yep. I was bit by the Swoon bug.
I even joined the Swoon-along over on flickr.
But then I had doubts.
I couldn't decide on a color palette or fabrics.
I couldn't decide where this quilt was going to live.
And mostly, I wasn't sure where I was going to find the time to make a gazillion half-square triangles and flying geese.
I was on the verge of giving up when I realized - hey, I can make just one block! The blocks are enormous (24.5" square) and one will make a lovely wall hanging.
Whew! It was so liberating to let myself off the hook for the whole quilt. And I really enjoyed making this one block using some of my very favorite fabrics. You see that sewing machine in the center block? Love it!
So glad I listened to my gut and went with one block instead of a whole quilt. Someday, I'll probably tackle the larger project but for now, this is perfect. I'm going to look for other ways to simplify and/or minimize larger projects that keep getting put on the back burner.
