Mini Swoon Done!

It seems the swoon block is sort of a celebrity in the quilting world.  And I think I understand why.  The first time I saw it, well, I guess you could say I swooned.  You could definitely say that the one thought pounding in my head over and over again was “MUST.HAVE.NOW”.

I purchased a .pdf copy of the mini swoon pattern.  The block is hard.  Well, hard for me.  Each one took 3+ hours.  Lots of cutting, ironing, piecing.  But so worth it.  Even worth it where my swoons are a little wonky in pieces.

This quilt has a lot of my favorite quilty things… low volume, quirky grey prints, Anna Maria Horner and Joel Dewberry fabrics.  And my favoritest is this fun text binding… adds a lot of whimsy.  Not very straight whimsy, but whimsy.
