Distracted! 

I finished quilting my Downton quilt yesterday. Last night I should have been working on the binding, but did I? Oh no! I saw this pile of goodies on my work table and decided to play instead.

I was thinking I would make an improv table runner…..then I thought about how I wanted to try out a Swoon block…. Hubby had a phone meeting for work so I cut and pieced this.

This is 24 inches square. It would be a good size for a table top quilt, though not rectangular like a runner. I’m going to leave it up on the design wall for a few days and think about it.

And I might make some mug rugs with my scraps.


What are you working on today?

Linking up with My Quilt Infatuation

    Love the colors! You are so productive! I just finished a baby quilt (throw size) for my daughter’s friend. I did the binding by machine so that went quick. I have a pile of UFO’s to quilt – maybe some will get done before Christmas!

    I *love* the Swoon block!! I can’t believe you cut and pieced it in one go (on the other hand, yes I can). 🙂

    What great mottled Fall/Thanksgiving colors! Table topper for Thanksgiving, perhaps? Looking forward to seeing how you ‘border’ this one out.

    Working on Fall cleaning/organizing. Finally got a long over due QOV loaded yesterday. Hoping to get to quilt over the weekend.

    Happy Quilting!

    Love the fabric colors in your swoon block. Are they Hand Dyes?

    Love the fabrics. I must make a confession. I seem to be the only one in internet land that’s not a fan of the Swoon. I do like how your mug rug is looking though

  6. That must have been a very long phone call! Love the fabric colours and your super precise points!

  7. But isn’t it so much fun to get distracted!!

    LOVE that Swoon table topper! I love that block and would like to give it a go … a nice sized table topper like yours might just be the way to go.
