pillow covers and fmq

The last few weeks were very quiet – both sewing wise as well as blogging wise. Even though I have received new fabrics, I didn’t really do a lot. I was preparing some patterns especially for lady-pupils that come to my open classes, taking in account all their quilt design wishes. Nevertheless I made these 2 pillow covers with the Swoon block pattern:

I have used all the rests from swoon blocks I have found and pieced another 3 pillow covers. All pieces are free motion quilted with meanders. Practice is the best teacher!

    I’m in practice mode too–yours looks very good. Interesting how different light and dark fabrics make the swoon block look, especially the first two photos.

      Thanks for your comment. I have seen many swoon blocks with many different color combinations and each of them is an original. Each color gives a totally different impression of the block.

      Thanks, I wish I could piece my blocks as precisely as you. Love your paper piecing stars. I think this will be my new challenge for 2014! So I’ll be visiting your site a lot.
