I've Dithered Long Enough

Dithering prevents one from getting anything done. Since about 2011 or 2012, I have dithered about making a Swoon quilt; I keep finding things to think about or options to consider or combinations to ponder - all for what? Am I going to make a quilt I don't like? I doubt it. Most everything I've ever made has pleased me.

Recently, the designers came out with a smaller version, and I saw gazillions of blocks on the blogs and on Instagram with three colors plus a background instead of two plus a background. I now had MORE to take into consideration!

Finally, the new month and a relatively clean slate prompted me into action. By gosh, just make the pattern you have and get on with it! Dither no more!

I began making this block with totally different fabric. Then I decided that I ought to make a sample block first, so grabbed some fabric on my table - that center blue/aqua and some white. I stopped when I finished the center star block. After a couple of days, I thought, "Go ahead and finish the entire block using Kaffe Fassett fabrics." So I fished around in the stash to see what I could coordinate, and the result is what you see above.

So this is a sample or test block. You know what? I think I am going to stay with the KF fabrics and do the other 8 blocks.

Hopefully I can stay focused on this and get the rest finished - this month?? Maybe!

I will link up with  Finish It Up Friday; Amanda Jean always has such interesting guests participating in her linkups.

Happy Quilting, Friends!

  1. I've been seeing those swoon blocks every where and wanting to join in, too. I'll have to find a tutorial. Love those fabrics!
