I remember being a young girl and the feeling I got from swinging. It was like flying! I've watched my own children and grandchildren enjoy that same feeling. One of my favorite poems was The Swing by Robert Louis Stevenson. "Oh, to go up in the air on a swing. Up in the air so blue. ....." This quilt is large enough to serve as a nap quilt, but would look sweet on a wall in a child's room. Although it is designed with turned under applique (be sure and read my EASY method first), you could easily use machine or fusible applique if you wanted. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS approximately 42" x 52"
