It's finished! My first Swoon block!
The fabric had been cut for some time already, but I finally got around to sewing it! I finished the block all in one sitting, because I was so curious to see how it would turn out, that I just couldn't stop before. It's not perfect, but I still think it's really pretty. The making of the block was much easier than I thought, although that doesn't mean I didn't use the seam ripper ... My impatience resulted in pieces being sewn on the wrong way or to the wrong seam ... However, in the end it all came together.
I think the size of this block is a great motivator. It made me keep on sewing for longer as I usually would have on a workday. I'm really looking forward to how all the blocks will look together. I was thinking about my choice of making a solid Swoon and I am still happy with it, although it definitely is a great pattern to showcase prints.
I also like the colours of this block. They are a bit out of my comfort zone, but they have this really nice almost vintage vibe to them, I think. They go really well with the January page of the Camilla Engman calendar I got myself for Christmas.
Such a pretty pattern! J. likes it as well and even asked me if we could keep this one for ourselves for a change. Yes, we can! :-)
