Scrappy Swoon Along Finish

My Scrappy Swoon Along is finally complete.  Whohoo!  I quilted it with feathered leis and feathered circles.  I'm really happy how this quilt finished.  I really like the starry binding.  I did put a mini border on it because I don't like to longarm over all the pieced squares.  I like the effect with the heart border and stary binding.  Thank you, Jennifer, Hopeful Homemaker Blog, for hosting this QA.  The step-by-step instructions were so doable.

The 3.5" squares and HST were cut with my Accuquilt GO! Baby.  This helped me utilize my scraps effectively.  The quilt found a happy home as a Quilt of Valor with my childhood friend, Steve, who now resides in Brazil.  He is retired from the US Navy.

Now that this QA is done, Jessica at Quilty Habit blog has an Argyle QA that is very tempting.
The quilt needs to be done by 3/27 to get in on the prizes at 1 Choice 4 Quilting (who always has great prizes!)  We'll see.  I sure do  have a lot of other projects going on right now.  Here it is if you want to check it out:


  1. I love that you have reversed the vaules! It's so striking. Gorgeous colour choice.

  2. And it really IS a lovely finish, too! Great job! It would make a super American Hero donation. (My future one, not yours!)
