A Swoon Finish at last

You may remember that I posted about a Swoon project that I was working on in these posts here and here..

I am not emotionally ready to work on the larger black and gold batik one yet as the intended recipient passed away in December.  I will finish it, and I have already decided who should have it, but I am just not ready quite yet..it is at the quilting stage and will hopefully get completed yet this summer.

But I did finally manage a finish of the test block I had started with and it made a nice little throw I am going to give one of my young nieces for her birthday.

 It is 38" x 40" and uses an older Robyn Pandolph line called "Sentimental Journey"...yes, the name fits...I'm pretty sure my niece doesn't read this blog and will just enjoy this quilt for it's rosy pink goodness.  She doesn't need to know the heavy heart I had completing it...

Straight line quilting really does the Swoon design justice, I think...

Oh Kris! This is so lovely. I had no idea these blocks were that large. I love the straight line quilting as well. I'm so sorry you lost someone in your life. Prayers from Texas.
