Swoon block #2

After I posted in Friday night, I just couldn't stop. I finished the flying geese units for the Swoon block #2.

Saturday night, I was so close to finishing it. I had nearly all the units completed and ready to put together.

Sunday, I squeezed in, putting the three horizontal rows together.

And today, Monday, I finished the last two seams to put the block together.

This is my little guy with Autism, who the quilt is for. His favorite color is red, hence the red background. I'm pretty sure I'm the only person making a Swoon that has used a darker background, let alone RED!
And little brother wanted to get in on the action, too, so I let them hold the two finished blocks together.


  1. I love the red background! Both blocks look wonderful, and it looks like both of your little guys are enjoying them :-)

  2. That is going to be a wonderful quilt. Love your models.

  3. I love the red. I'm like you, I went darker and chose midnight navy. as my background fabric. The red looks brilliant though very vibrant and fun.
