Katy from Im A Ginger Monkey is hosting the Swoon-a-long. A QAL using the wonderful Swoon block designed by Camille Roskelley. I purchased the pattern but instead of 9 24″ blocks as in the instructions, I chose to make a mega swoon block measuring 80″ x 80″. The individual blocks are pieced and complemented with a large print fabric that was fussy cut. I started awhile ago and then was distracted by other projects but today I decided to get it finished.
It is 10.30pm on friday night and I have the top all ready to sew together. To finish it off I will quilt using an intricate custom pattern in colourful threads. The binding will be the claret solid used in the centre block. To join in the fun head over to the Flickr group and see all the Swoonalicious blocks that are being made.
