Thanks so much for all of the great comments on the sneak peek for this quilt. It seems most of us have started a "spur of the moment" project because the combination of fabric and pattern just seemed to be made for each other. And yes, it's Swoon! I made this quilt last April as a sample for Camille's booth at quilt market (see that version of the quilt here). I truly love this pattern...and I knew I'd be making it again...I just didn't know what fabric line I would be using. I came really close to making another Ruby version, but I already have a couple of other projects lined up for my Ruby stash. So this pattern sat. Until the other night when I just knew it would be amazing in these fabrics!
If you're not familiar with the pattern...it has quite the visual impact in person. It's hard to capture in a photo the feeling you get from seeing this quilt in "real life." The quilt is made up of 9 blocks, each measuring 24 inches finished.
I can't wait to make a few more blocks. I was going to take my time with this one, but it's just so fun to see the color combinations come together in the blocks that I might put everything else aside until this one is finished! Thanks so much for stopping by!
