WIP Wednesday

Our unusually warm weather(-5 to +5) finally ended in typical Prairie fashion....morning temperature yesterday -37C!! Not a typo :-(.    
The only thing to do on a day like today is drink tea, read, and sew, so that's just what I am doing.
I finished up a new pillow to go with my quilt Come Fly With Me.

I had already completed one pillow using the Circle of Geese pattern, which I love.
This pillow is a Maple Leaf block pattern using the same Kaffe shot cotton, and crosshatch fabrics.
Perfect for snuggling under on a cold winter day.
I might have to take a nap!!
I'm also slowly working on my quilt using 1930's reproduction fabrics.
I call it Path to Tallahassee. Here are 2 more completed blocks.

And this is what I have completed so far......
I finally caved in and ordered the Swoon pattern! I really wanted to do this quilt this year, so there is no time like the present.
Just seeing all the Swoon quilts coming together in the Swoonalong flickr group, has me anxious to get started!
I completed my Japanese x and + blocks for the flickr swap and have sent them off to the UK. where Sarah is going to do all the heavy lifting in order to sort them all and return new ones!
 I guess that's about it for this week.
Once again, unfinished projects from last year, remain unfinished!
Time to link up with Lee at Freshly Pieced.

I LOVE your repro project! The fabrics are so bright and cheery and those block styles are perfect for it.

I made a Swoon last year and it's a very rewarding project!

I can't even imagine -37! Be sure sure to warm! I love the way you combine brights with grey and your blocks look lovely too!

As I am working on a Maple Leaf table-runner myself, your Maple Leaf pillow really caught my eye. Beautiful. How cool to make pillows that match your quilt.

Your pillows are awsome!
I also really love that Path to Tallahasse block, it's new to me.

I am swooning along...sort of impossible not to!
