My top is down.....

No, not that top!!!  My swoon top is DONE!!  Here is a look at the last three blocks that I needed to complete.

One....
Two....
Three....all 9 are completed!!  and.....teedah....

Here she is, all put together!  I am pretty pleased with the way she turned out.  Now, to baste this beast!  The table I use is only 24x48 inches, so you can see where the problem is.  I can't get on the floor to baste, so I am left with only this choice.  Wish me luck in getting the backing, batting and top all centered and basted!

I really appreciate all the help with how I should quilt her.  I think I will be going with loop-t-loops.  I have never quilted such a large piece, so it will be a challenge  adventure!  Fortunately, this quilt will be mine, so, there isn't near as much pressure.....or is there?  I am really persnickety, and will see all of her flaws.  YIKES!!


Two more receiving blankets for your new Princess!!

I am linking on over to Sew Cute Tuesday with Kelly at Better Off Thread!  It is so much fun to be part of such a great group of quilty friends.  Kelly's work is outstanding, and she donates most of what she makes!  Thank you Kelly, for all of your faithfulness and be blessed always.

OMGoodness Vicki - it looks terrific. I want to get caught up so i can Swoon with everyone. Yours is terrific. And I know what you mean about not having room to baste. I've either been QAYG or I lay it on the floor,Peel back half
spray baste, then peel back the other hald and spray baste that, then start pinning. I usually can't stand up straight by the time I finish! lol Can't wait to see the finish!

Wow, Vicki, you really get r done! I see why they call that the swoon block. It's so gorgeous it really will make you swoon. I love your colors. And you just amaze me at how quickly you work. Loop de loops will look wonderful on it. I use plastic clamps that I bought in the automotive section at Walmart to clamp my backing down on my dining room table when I baste. If I'm careful it works well. You will figure it out. Have fun! :)
