"Neptune Swoon": Progress Update!

Well folks, I did it.  The top is pieced.  Neptune Swoon is now a flimsy!!!

I am super proud of it!  The blocks took a lot of time, but once they were done the top came together very quickly.  I suppose that's the blessing of large blocks!!!

The sun was extra bright for pictures, so sorry if they're a little shadowy.  This morning was super foggy, and that would've been great if I'd had the time to snap some photos before heading to work!

 It almost feels like summer today.  The sun is shining, and there is a slight breeze coming off lake Michigan.  They finally filled the pool here at my condo, and I am looking forward to having pool/dinner parties in the coming months. 

The background fabric I used on this quilt looks like cracking paint.  I thought it was perfect because it reminded me of the dock posts here in the harbor.  See what I mean?!

Anyway I need to get outside while I can enjoy this great weather!  I hope everyone is having a great week!  Happy "Hump Day"

The Quilted Mitten


  1. you can't go wrong with swoon! great fabric selection for it.

  2. Very nice, Swoon is still on my to do list!!

  3. Gorgeous Cristina! I'm not surprised you're proud of it, I know I would be :) How big are the blocks; will it fit a bed when you're done? I really love the white sashing, such a great way of focussing the attention on the blocks themselves. x

  4. Very pretty quilt. I'll have to try this sometime.

  5. Love that white background:):)

  6. Gorgeous! Definitely one to be proud of.
    And the background fabric is perfect with Neptune!

  7. Lovely! I think it already has that feel of a comfy, cozy quilt.

  8. I just finished binding my Swoon quilt two days ago. I'm glad it is finished but I would happily make it again! You can't go wrong with Swoon and you definitely can't go wrong with Neptune! Can't wait to see your quilt quilted. It's beautiful!
