    Swoon blocks

    Seems like swoon blocks are all the rage right now. At our quilt guild we were given a "President's Challenge". Each of us was to bring a yard of fabric in a brown paper bag. The bags were exchanged. From the yard of fabric I received, I am to make a 40" x 40" square, of course adding some of my own fabric. At our Christmas party/meeting in Dec. we will bring back our completed squares and give them back to the person who supplied the fabric. Hidden in the bag I received, I found a yummy yard of floral fabric from the Moda "Bliss" line. I just happened to have a layer cake from the same line of fabric.

    So, I decided to try my hand at making a swoon block. The first one I made only measured 16.6". I could have made 3 more, added some sashing to come up with a 40 x 40 block. But I decided to make one BIG swoon block.

    Here are my 2 blocks:

    Sorry, the second block failed to load. I think I need to downsize the file. Wish me luck!
    Blessings!

    Beautiful block. Love the intricate piecing. What does "swoon" stand for? I am not aware of what is all the rage. Enlighten me!

    Ok, I think I might have successfully made the file smaller!

    Evidently I need to crawl out from under my rock more often because I'd never heard of a "swoon" block either. But I will say this... this beautiful block makes me want to swoon. No, it's not the heat (LOL) -- it's those gorgeous fabrics! "Bliss" is the right name for that line!

    It is a block created by Camille Roskelley, and it just seems to be popping up everywhere. The name? Because it makes you "swoon" over it? I don't know.
    Blessings!
