Well, my Denyse Schmidt “Swoon” quilt is ready to be quilted. This is probably my last big finish before school starts next week, so I was glad to be able to get this project wrapped up!
I think I finished up my last quilt for the summer. Immediately after finishing it up I ran outside to get a photo. I ended up putting my “make-do” block right in the middle–I think it ended up being my favorite one! (The photo is kind of dark since the sun was already starting to set).
So this morning I snapped another photo…and hopefully it’s off to the quilter soon!

What a wonderful quilt! So vintage looking and modern at the same time.

A great quilt! Maybe I need to get a quilter for all my tops….grin.
I keep thinking I'll win the lotto and get me a long arm.
It is lovely. Another to add to my want-to-do list

Beautiful quilt. Looks kinda vintage to me, I like vintage.
I really like this block a lot. I discovered it's a block called Carpenter's Wheel. I found several old quilts using this block in some antique quilt books I have. Congratulations on your beautiful finish.
Really lovely. I am going to start cutting mine this weekend!
I have started 2 swoon quilts 🙂 One for me and one for my coming nephew 🙂 I LOvE this pattern!
I love all the versions i have seen of this quilt! It is a stunner!

It's gorgeous Sherri – and I think your make do block in the middle is my favourite too!
What a great way to end the summer! I like your make do block too – it's so vibrant. Can't wait to see the reveal.
Beautiful quilt, can't wait to see it quilted.
Nice giveaway and they have pfaff too, would be nice to get some pfaff products, maybe some learning tools so I can learn how to use my machine.
I really, really like it!! I think I might even give it a try when I've finished up a few projects ahead of it!! Just lovely. ~karen
Sherri it is absolutely beautiful!! My favorite is the Make Do block too, I think or maybe…oh gosh they're all wonderful!
LOVE your Swoon quilt! I can hardly wait to make one of my own.

Sheri Howard says
Love the color choice! I saw your quilt in Quiltmania…so GREAT!
It's beautiful, Sherri.
I LUV this quilt and I think your "make do" block fits right in.
Your swoon quilt is just beautiful, I plan on finishing mine this weekend. I have 2 blocks to go,
Very pretty quilt!
I really love this. I rarely buy patterns, but I may have to purchase this one!
This turned out fabulous! I love the variety of blocks, and the different positioning of the dark and medium values. Creates a cool effect so your eyes move around the quilt. This one came together pretty fast!

I love it so much I may have to make one!
Lynn Koeppen says
So beautiful! Good for you!
Swoon is great pattern. Isn't it fun to vary the placement of lights and darks?

Your Swoon quilt is commendable! I could just swoon myself for it. I like your photo outdoors on the lawn, too. It's so difficult to get a good photo of a large quilt. Sometimes I lay mine out on my foyer floor and go upstairs to get a photo.
Have a super day!
