This week I'm going to attempt to update ya'll with all of the sewing I was doing during December/January for the last month or so while I was pregnant!  That last month really goes by fast and plus I was sewing like a maniac to get everything done that I wanted to!  So keep checking back this week for more quilts and sewing projects!

This Swoon quilt was made for a customer as a Christmas present for her mother in law!  She told me what colors and I went with the Swoon pattern!  This block was super fun to make and by using different fabrics it really made the blocks look completely different!  She told me that she wanted it to fit on a king size bed! This is the largest quilt I have ever made, it finished around 110" square!  I'm 5'3", so you can see how big it really is!  My husband and brother in law who are both over 6 foot had to stand on chairs to hold it up for this photo!  (Thanks guys by the way!) Also, thanks Rachel for the photos!
 Look at that belly!  I miss feeling Jared fluttering around inside my tummy, but I am SO glad that he is out!

Wow, the picture shows how massive that quilt really is!! Amazing work. Did you quilt it on a domestic sewing machine? I did a queen size swoon, and that was my limit as far as size!!

Great looking quilt and wow is that big (the quilt, not your belly- LOL!) I was thinking of stopping at 9 blocks but now I'm reconsidering. I do love a big quilt. Take care!
