Ben Franklin Quilt Block 20

It's called the July Fourth block, and it's the 20th and last one.  So this qal is coming to a close.

I'm up to 7 Swoon blocks and am aiming for 9.  One block uses 2 fat quarters for the prints and probably another FQ for the background.  I usually don't get more than one block made in a day.  Has anyone else found that when they make this block?

Sunday was a good day for crocus hunting.  

And some daffodils.

There are more out there but we still have snow and some are still covered, but I was happy to see them coming up.  

God Bless!

I've not made the large swoon block (did a mini size for a doll quilt once) but one a day sounds resonable. It's the joy of the journey. Our early flowers are still pretty deep under snow, so I hope they are still resting.

Great fabrics for your Ben Franklin. I cut out the fabrics, but that's as far as a got...:)

Both blocks look lovely, especially the swoon one. What colour are your crocus? Take care.

Both blocks are really lovely , I have never made a swoon block but that sounds reasonable for that size block . Lucky you having flowers coming up , ours are still very much buried :-(
