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.
The finished quilt was put in our hallway gallery…
