I';m doing a personal swoon quilt along this year, too. 2 hours for a block is not enough (for me), I used 6 1/2 hours for cutting for one block and sewing it all together (I have done one block by now). I will be making a block a month and at the end of the year I';ll have my swoon quilt finished. A block a week is definetely too much for me as I only have some hours in the evening to sew. I wish you joy with your quilt along!
