For the past several years “Swoon” quilts and quilt blocks have been all the rage. Quilters seem to love to make these blocks over-sized and in a variety of fabrics from “Modern” to ” Thirties” to “Reproduction.” This block is very similar if not identical to the traditional “Dutch Rose” or “Carpenter’s Wheel” designs.
In any event, my daughter had a stash of Benartek’s Silk Road fabric collection. She decided a Swoon Quilt would be perfect, so that is what I have been working on. These blocks will finish up sewn into the quilt at a whopping 20″ square. I needed 25 of them with sashing strips (yet to come) to arrive at a king size quilt for her. I have the blocks completed and I think they make a fun little video to watch:
Very nice…all the blocks are amazing!!!!
Love Swoon quilts. I have one waiting for me to decide on how to quilt it. How are you going to quilt or have yours quilted?
I would love to quilt mine the way Kay Bell did hers here:
Always amazing things from you!!! Keep us posted…Love you.
Thank you, Lillian!
