i'm swooning!

August 8, 2011

A couple of weeks ago I had to put my 1001 peeps quilt on hold because of the heat.  I, however, can't be without a project to work on!  I told you all that I have really been feeling the quilts lately, so I started another one!  :)

I LOVED Camille's swoon pattern the minute I saw it on her blog.  I knew I would eventually try it but after seeing so many beautiful ones on flickr and in blogland, it moved to the top of my "quilts to make" list!  The blocks are huge, 24", and are really stunning in person!

I had gotten a gotten a FQ bundle of Tanya Whelan's Delilah from the fat quarter shop at 50% off, can't beat that!!  So, that is what I'm using!  I was planning to put this one at the end of our bed but it's looking  awfully girly so it may end up in the general circulation of quilts.  I may have to make another one in AMH's loulouthi, I think it would be a great match!  

I have a couple more blocks made but the weather has been cloudy and I have not gotten pics taken yet, I will get on top of it this week and show you some more!  They are really fun to make and not as difficult as they look.  

Hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Wow, those blocks are beautiful! I especially like the second one.

  2. LOVE Swoon! I've made a couple of one-block 'minis', but really am looking forward to making full-size Swoon quilt! Yours is off to a lovely start!

  3. I had to have that pattern as soon as I saw it too! YOur fabrics and blocks turned out really sweet. Can't wait to see more!

  4. It looks really beautiful - and I love the huge blocks!

  5. I think I'll have to try this pattern. I've been swooning over Angela's (fussycut) and now yours so nice!!

  6. Eep! I am just waiting on my last fabric delivery for this quilt, and then I can't wait to get started! Yours looks amazing!

  7. Amy your blocks are gorgeous!! Can't wait to see the quilt :)

  8. Oh gosh... I just got this pattern! I am dying to try it. I've seen so many beautiful takes on it in the last few months. Are the blocks difficult to make? I dont have any fancy cutting tools (besides the basics) so I hope it's easy enough for me to make. Your blocks look great! Good thing your house is full of girls!
