I am 2/3 of the way in my block progress. Well that is what I thought back when I wrote #swoon2013 – Part 1. Back then, I thought I needed 30 blocks – 6 rows of 5 blocks. Now that I have 20 blocks done I am not so sure – more on that in a minute. For now let’s look at my 20 blocks:
The top 10 are the last ones I made, the bottom 10 are the first ones I made.
I have laid the blocks back out on my bed to see where we are. Here they are laid out on my bed:
You will notice I have one of the blocks tucked around a pillow. This is the way I will make my bed so I needed to make sure there was enough to tuck. After all this I am thinking I only need 5 rows of 5 blocks, instead of the 6 rows of 5 blocks like I originally thought.
So….now I only need to make 5 more blocks!! Woo Hoo! I will be adding a bit of Gracie Girl to the mix of fabric as well.
I have a question for all of you, my readers….
When making the bed, there will be room for either 2 king pillows or 3 regular pillows. BUT due to my husband’s need to build a fort while he is sleeping, we have 3 king and 3 regular pillows. Which brings me to my question….
How do I incorporate those extra pillows into my bed ensemble without it being overwhelming? Know this….my husband is NOT going to take off any frou frou covers before bed!
Can’t wait to hear your ideas!!
