In Love...


I finished my Denyse Schmidt "Swoon."  I'm smitten with this quilt...absolutely in love with it!  Is it odd that I love this quilt sooo much?!  That Camille is a genius...this pattern is genius...and I love it in every fabric I've seen it in.  Also, I'm planning another one now...is that completely crazy?! I finished hand-stitching the binding in one sitting and have this quilt on display in my living room where I walk by it several times a day!



 I need to get a full-size photo with better lighting, though.  It seems full sun is always too bright, and shade is always just a little dark.  I'm considering having a photographer friend take some pictures for me! If I do, I'll share them!



For now I'll just keep enjoying this quilt...I love it every way you look at it!

For an amazing video...go here (be prepared to cry...there's just something about kids hugging quilts that gets to me every time)!

I can see why you are in love with it. It is absolutely beautiful. I love the star, looks like a flower or a kaleidoscope being turned. I also like to leave something I make out and look at it during the day. I can't stop looking at sometimes. How wonderful we get so much joy from our creating! Great job, I'm proud of you!
