feeling swoony this weekend

Oh boy, I love this pattern! So much so that I bought the pattern several months ago as soon as I started seeing quilts made from this pattern. (Of course, then I failed to actually make any of the blocks…)

And that’s why I was so happy when Katy started the Swoon along. Apparently it was just the push I needed! After I found my pattern (someone needs to clean their sewing space!), I debated about fabric choices, but ultimately decided to go with my old standby (a favorite for years now!), Flea Market Fancy.

These blocks are large!, finishing just under 25″, so each takes a bit of time to complete, but somehow I find it to be so satisfying. I’m really excited about the 4 I’ve completed so far!

Want to join the Swoon-along? Be sure to check out the Swoon-along Flickr group for helpful info and of course, lots of photos of gorgeous blocks!

    Gorgeous blocks! Seeing them makes me wish I had purchased some of the flea market fancy fabrics, so I’m hoping to get some in the next round this spring. I have been admiring all the beautiful blocks and Swoon quilts people are making these days, but I know I just won’t have time for this project. Fun to watch yours come together.

    I’m enjoying all the swoon quilts. You must have a vault worth of FMF. It was worth breaking into it for those beautiful blocks.

    Okay, I can’t contain my curiosity any longer. I’ve been a follower for more than a year, and I keep seeing all of the gorgeous FMF quilts… and then more still. Do you own bolts of the entire fabric line?

    You’re a bad influence, Ashley! I bought Swoon. Now if only I can find the time. Please reveal your secret, with Max, how DO you find the time to sew?!

    Swooning over your swoon!

    Lynnet says:

    Oh how incredibly beautiful! I love your colors and combinations! I have Swoon at the top of my project list, but I’m afraid I’m going to have a hard time finding just the right material. I’m also afraid that once I do this one, I’ll not want to let it go.
