Sashing Swoon and More Sampler Blocks for WIP Wednesday

Remember these blocks?  Swoon using Heirloom -- yup, I'm finally getting around to sashing them.  It took me a while to get to this point, because I originally wanted to make a king-sized quilt using a 4 x 4 setting.  After the 10th block, when I accidentally singed a corner with the iron, I put the project away for a while.  I have now decided that the original 3 x 3 setting (finishing at 80" x 80") is just fine.  I can't wait to get this done and quilted -- I've got some ideas brewing.

I also finished another block for my Classic Sampler. This is one of my favorites, although I would do it a little differently if I had thought about it in the first place.

I'm linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced and am heading over there right now to see what everyone else is up to!

Oh, that reminds me, I should be doing more swoon blocks instead of starting other projects. Duh! Now, I'm curious as to what you would do differently in your rolling stone block??

That's a lovely version of Swoon!

Your Swoon is so lovely. The soft colours are just gorgeous! Yes, 80 x 80 is plenty big enough. I make those kinds of compromises all the time in the name of progress. I have these grand plans but in the end I just want the thing done!

The Swoon quilt is very beautiful. It will truly be a quilt to cherish.
Great fabrics for the Classic Sampler. Love how modern they look!

There's always that tension between thinking things out (and maybe over thinking?) and the enthusiasm to just get to work. It's all very lovely, though.
