This is a picture of all my swoon fabrics cut up and bagged into block components. Each bag contains pre-cut units of background fabric, light toned feature batik and dark toned featuer batik. Its never occured to me before to construct a quilt this way. Which is odd because I ALWAYS approach garment sewing like this; cutting out up to half a dozen projects at once and then doing the sewing over the following days/weeks (sometimes months).
Preparing the Swoon quilt like this took a bit more thinking and organisation. It was worth it though and I love the feeling that I've got a significant (and boring) portion of the quilt done already. And it makes the whole quilt seem less overwhelming, no mean thing since its a large queen size quilt. I need only a spare moment and one of those bags and I have the next Swoon block done.
Next time I have a spare hour up my sleeve you'll know where to find me!
