In-flight Quilt Along – Swift


It’s been another busy week at work and then last night we were awoken by the sound of gushing water, which turned out to be a burst main pipe under the house. So all the best laid plans for a day learning to FMQ with some quilting friends turned to custard.

By 2pm the plumber had located and fixed the leak and all was well, so I worked on my Wheel (Moxie) quilt and on this Swift block from TartanKiwi’s In-flight QAL.

I forgot to get a photo of the Wheel quilt before it went dark so will have to post a photo later in the week, but I am happy with it and made a backing so will spray baste it this week ready for hand quilting. Yep, another one to be hand quilted! I am on a roll and ready for winter!!

The Swift block was very straightforward. I have heard that the blocks get trickier as we progress but I hope to be improving all the time too, so I am hoping I will be ready for complexity when it arrives! I am going to do the entire background in that Oval Elements Mood Indigo and stick to solids for the birds. I think it will be cute.

Stick around for Sunday Stash – it’s a bit different this week!
