First block done...

first quilt block for Swoon quilt
Last night I couldn't wait to get started, so I had the chance to run out and buy some Kona Snow for the background and worked on this one late into the night.  I'm excited to see the other fabrics sewn up... maybe the kids won't want to play outside too long today :)  Its supposed to be in the 90 degrees here today and we're already outside and it is kind of muggy out... love summertime! - Jennifer

added to original post: Just got the second one done - these are fun to make!

this is really pretty....out of curiosity...what solids would you recommend having on hand for a variety of quilting projects? things that might go with a lot of things.
