But when Sarah announced the Swoon 2013 QAL I couldn't resist any longer. I'm in. Hook line and sinker. If anyone can keep me right on track, its Miss Sarah. She has my mobile phone number for the love of god! Anyway, I ran off immediately and downloaded my Swoon pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.
And I signed the shop up to be a sponsor (details on Sarah's page) just to give myself a little bit more of a push. No messing now!
I had a little look around my stash for the 18 FQs I need for this pattern. I found 12 that rang my bell. They were the 12 special DS prints that I have had sitting on a high high shelf for over a year now. I think they'll make a pretty swoon quilt.
I quickly added on another 4 grey prints as well as 2 golds (in the post right now!) to round out 18 I need.
I even thought ahead enough to pick this up for binding. Since these prints are so old, they are on sale in nearly every shop. Bonus!
I am ready to roll, then. Week 1 of the Swoon 2013 QAL and I am on track. I'm hoping to make a few blocks while I wait for the grey/gold prints in the post. Can't wait to get to cutting now!
