A Swoon Song

Projects? What projects? After seeing Camille Roskelley's Swoonery post yesterday {see here}, I had but one choice. Put all the w.i.p.s aside and face reality. I want to make a Swoon quilt of my own. Here's block ONE.
And yes, that's Terrain. I have had my pairs set out for these blocks since last week. You know, waiting to finish up some of those w.i.p.s first. Whatever. Last night when I decided to dive in, I was so excited, I had to cover my eyes and have hubby pick which set to cut into first! (I'd like to say, "Just kidding," but I'm not.) 

This is a fun pattern to put together - simple blocks come together to make a striking whole. Do be sure and check out Camille's post for some pure quilty beauty. No matter what fabric it's sewn with, Swoon is stunning.

I haven't seen a Swoon block yet that I haven't been in love with. Love yours, too! That Terrain is so pretty.

I am impatiently waiting for my Swoon pattern to arrive. I was thinking of using Terrain for mine, but I wasn't sure. You might have swayed me in that direction! It's beautiful!

This is too funny! I spent way too much time looking at swoon blocks on-line yesterday and thinking I NEED to do this. The Terrain fabric is a great idea! Can't wait to see how yours turn out!

I've been doing good at resisting the Swoon, but after seeing this and all the others you've pinned I feel my resolve crumbling... I can't wait to see more of your blocks. Great choice in fabrics!

You are not going to believe what I found yesterday, A Swoon pattern that my sister had given me back in May. So I think I will be Swooning some fabric very soon.

Susan said...

So looking forward to seeing your Swoon quilt come along. As with Toni I am trying to resist. :)

Lovely! I am awaiting my fabric to start this. I have my solid color already in cream, and have all the pieces cut from that that I'll need - now I just need my prints!

I've been so loving this pattern and have it on my "for sure to do" list! I just love all the blocks I've been seeing and this one you made is so pretty! Can't wait to see the rest!
