Swooning around….

Our friend Andreena has been swanning around the South Island for eight weeks. While she has been away her Sweet Pea girl friends have been busy working on a secret project. You see Andreena is celebrating a significant birthday on Friday. Some of us were nearly swooning at the challenge! It was all worth it though.

Swoon quilt

The blocks are HUGE, nine blocks make a 80” square quilt. Very hard to capture a picture of. The original Swoon quilt has Baptist fans on it which I love but I think Spirals look great too.

Yesterday we gathered for morning tea and presented Andreena with her quilt.
