I finished the Swoon quilt for my inlaws. I love it, and so do they. I didn’t get great photos of it since I had to take pictures without a helper holding it up. So I just put it on my king bed even though it’s a queen.
I used Denyse Schmidt’s line for Joann Fabrics. I picked 9 prints, and alternated them once for the center fabric, and once for the outer print fabric. I love these fabrics, as I love all of Denyse Schmidt’s fabric lines. :)
I accidentally used my 3/8″ foot and didn’t discover it till I had made several blocks that I was supposed to be doing 1/4″ seams. So my blocks ended up a bit smaller than 24″. But I added a little wider white sashing, and then used one of the prints to sash it around the outside. I like the way that ended up looking. Although I love the original pattern too and when I finish mine will do it with out a patterned sashing since it will just be for couch snuggles. :)
My machine is on an anti free motion quilt kick right now, it keeps catching and breaking the tread. So…. I just did a simple loop free motion along the sashing and the quilting around each square and did a sort of star straight line quilting over each block. It was quick and looks fine.
I love the way it turns out, and it makes me so excited to finish my own Swoon Quilt.
Thanks for stopping by!
