Swoon Finish

One quilt off my Lifetime To Do List, a project that was on there way too long, what was I waiting for?

The fabric is by Bonnie and Camille for Moda, I picked my favorite prints from several different lines.

This block didn't make the cut.

I like it, it just didn't pop when it was on my design wall with the other Swoon blocks.  That's OK, I'll put it on the back.  I enjoyed piecing each block and didn't mind making 10, honest.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 194
The pattern is Swoon by Camille Roskelley for Thimbleblossoms
The fabric is by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.
It finished at 80" x80"
It has approximately 741 pieces.

I love how this quilt turned out so much I think I may have to splurge on a custom quilting job, after all it IS The Year of Thelma.

I think I'm going to try and squeeze this project in next, Love You Most by Bonnie at Cotton Way. (available here)

Over the years I've enjoyed seeing the Valentines Day projects and heart quilts pop up online, but I never saw myself making one, until I saw this pattern.  I think it's the hearts, I love their size and the slash of a different print down the middle.

My goal is to have it pieced by Valentine's Day!  But if I run a few days over that's OK too, it will be done and ready for next year.

  8. I made a Swoon quilt for each of my stepdaughters. The fabrics were way out of the box for me - real zingy stuff. I think the quilts turned out beautiful. Sometimes it's nice to do something different. Love your Swoon!

  10. Beautiful, Thelma! Can't wait to see it quilted!

  11. Beautiful. Did you follow the pattern or did you make the flying geese in a different way? I've seen several other methods referenced through the years. A Swoon is on my 2017 MUST DO list.
