Swoon and mini swoon

Well, I only got one swoon done over the weekend (my boy came home for a visit, so that trumps sewing time!)

I did, however, sew up a couple of mini swoons. The pattern has quite a few large-ish flying geese, which makes for some nice leftover triangles. I sewed these up into smaller blocks. So, ideally, when my big swoon is finished, I'll have a mini swoon wall hanging as well.

I also got some bee block finished, both for Bee Vintage.

Jodie asked for a string block. I love how this worked up. It's a large block, 16". I could definitely see it as a pillow (maybe even a bit bigger at 20".)

Colleen asked for a zig zag. They're subtle, but there!

Can't believe it's the final month of the bee. We went with a 6 month format this time, which I much prefer. I hope to start another round in January.

I just love the fabric that you are using, the block are great looking.

Love the swoon. I have the pattern and hope to find time to make some myself at some point.

I'm working on Swoon - too; wish I'd thought to keep all the scraps together, I love your mini swoon!

I love the Swoon. I have the pattern and the fabric. One of these days I will start it.

i love your mini swoon idea! and your chevrons were much better than mine - i didn't have much contrast. i think it would be fun to make them with rows in color - like a blue zigzag, a yellow zigzag - it makes the zigzag easier to spot! i'm definitely in for round 3!
