I love red, and I love dots.. so I think this might be my favorite one now.. I'm kind of in love with it, but I like them all. That being said, ironing these pieces of red dots, on top my of red polka dot ironing board cover.. bliss. :o)
Now #8 (green print with yellow dots) is cut and marked and pinned and in the process of being sewn together. I don't know what I was thinking last time saying I might have two blocks to post this time. hahaa
Didn't quite happen. Yesterday morning, an hour after drop-off, my little mister had to be picked up from school.. this time he had thrown up! So many things going around right now. *sigh* And they are so thorough, even militant, about hand washing at school but I guess with kids, things are still going to go around. :(
I'm looking forward to finishing Swoons #8	 and getting the top completed.. b/c I can't stop thinking about cutting into my stash of Rainy Days and Mondays by Riley Blake.
I thought I had found a pattern for it last fall.. (free Riley Blake pattern)
..but recently I found a different one that I like a lot better. I think it will be gorgeous! It's called "Celebrate" and it's a free project pattern sheet from Riley Blake also.
I think the larger diamonds/harlequin-ish pattern will show off the umbrellas better.. I've had this fabric for ages and just couldn't bear to cut into it, but now that I'm 100% decided on the pattern, I kind of can't wait.
But I will squash back my Quilter ADD and focus on finishing the Swoon!! Because I love that one, too. Thanks for the virtual support and cheering on!
Gonna link up with the Thursday Think Tank @ Rebecca's.

I love the red dots and the blue print together - gorgeous!
Sorry that you've got "the crud" at your house. It's making its way around these parts, too. So far the ones I love have been "crud-free". Praying that your little guy will feel better *soon*!
I get bored with things but I am also a finisher. I just have to get done and move on. I think that's why I never start BOM's. It would drive me crazy to start on something,then put it away for another month.
Good for you for pressing on and I love the umbrellas!
Just love the red dots!!!! The umbrella's, love them too and I think your new pattern will be so nice to show off the umbrella's. I have seen so many nice patterns lately and can't wait to try some of them but have to finish what is on the table first. *sigh* Nice job on matching the points. The block is super!
Love this block! Of coarse red is one of my favorite colors and I love dots also! You are going to be so proud when you finish this one. I am not attempting it. I do want to make some granny square blocks though, just need to finish a couple of projects for this months birthdays. Also a thank you for stopping by!
Your Swoon block is certainly beautiful! Great fabrics :-) I recently had to pick up a boy at school for the same reason....ugh! I guess no matter how much hand sanitizer you use, and how much they wash they will still get sick, especially at this time of the year :-(
I have a stash of Rainy Days and Mondays too! I started a kaleidescope quilt with it last year - really need to finish that now that I think about it! Definitely one of my favorite lines - can't wait to see yours.... once you are done with Swoon ofcourse! ;-)
