Happy New Year!
We made it through the night with minimal fights and lots of cuddles... admittedly I feel asleep full of cold on the sofa at 8pm and only woke for 5 minutes at 9pm to put 2 monsters to bed!!!!
My New Years Eve these days are pretty (read very quiet)... involving movie, snacks and bed!
Over the last week I have made a cushion cover and started work on maxi's Velocity quilt - the top is smaller than the bottom at the moment....
But my favourite project has been starting my Swoon quilt. I have seen this quilt all over bloggers sites over the last year, but not really found fabric I wanted to use in it until my Floressence bundle arrived!

So I bought the pattern from thimble blossoms and set to work a couple of days ago!
The pattern needs 18 FQ so I mixed the Floressence with some solids and Sketch:
The blocks are big and quite complicated, so there is LOTS of cutting out:
And the cutting has to be really accurate, but the instructions are brilliantly clear!
I think you will agree the finished block is worth all the hard work:
The next block is all cut and ready to go...
Just got to occupy the monsters for long enough so I can make it...
I am taking part in the Fresh Sewing Day blog hop from Lily's Quilts, so go visit her to find other fabulous blogs taking part!
