Still Swooning!

Construction continues on my Swoon quilt.  I've made a couple of the 24" Swoon blocks to go with my 8" Mini Swoons.  I'm having a lot of fun fussy cutting special pieces of fabric to feature in the blocks.  I'm calling this my "Grown-Up I-Spy quilt" because I'm having fun burying some fun fabrics in the blocks.  Mustaches!  Mini Coopers!  Bingo Cards!  A girl in a tree!

Based on Camille Roskelley's wonderful Swoon and MINI Swoon patterns (find them here if you don't already have them!), I'm going to make up the layout as I go.  Still having fun and I love working with these bright colors!



  1. Beautiful! Love your quilt blocks. Can't wait to see the final layout. Hopefully someday I will get my Swoon quilt started. Just a little behind.

  2. I love that you used a scrappy background and the colors in the center just flow.
    LOVE LOVE LOVE this!

  3. I truly and Completely love your swoon blocks. What I notice is that you are able to SEE your blocks ahead of time and not just cut your pieces and stitch them together per pattern instructions. I want to be able to do that with my AMH fabrics to make a more bold swoon quilt also. A little hard for me, but I am right now in the progress of my very first small swoon quilt! Again, I love your work!

  4. WOW ! Love the scrappyness of this quilt ! Great background fabrics !
