    I like this block where can we get the directions? I also love the colors you have chosen to use.

    I am now working on the 16" blocks as well as the original Swoon which is a 24" finished block. I have liked doing both of them. For the small sized block there is a tutorial online that was previously posted. For the original authentic Swoon, got to thimbleberries.com. I made both quilts with Moda Vintage Modern. These patterns have a lot of pieces and HSTs. Beautiful blocks. Many pictures of Swoons online.

    You did a wonderful job with that pattern. I love your fabric choices. Was it difficult to work on such a large block?

    Close! The only requirements were to make a 40"x40" block or quilt top using the fabric in the brown bag. I chose to make the swoon block.

    This is the pattern I followed for my first square that measures 16x16: http://doublenickelquilts.blogspot.c...ilt-block.html It is the same link that IngeMK posted. This version eliminates a lot of HSTs. For my first square I used charm pack sized squares, just like the tute shows. For my larger block I used layer cake (10") squares, but followed the same instructions. Since I posted the picture, I added a boarder to my larger square, so it now measures 40x40". I have it hanging up in my sewing room and will leave it there until I have to part with it in December.
    Blessings!

    I love the Swoon block. I know someone that made a quilt using that block (she owns a quilt fabric store), and I asked her if she was going to sell it as a shop sample -- she said NO.

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:

    Have you posted any of your finished blocks? Here are some pictures of swoons that I have posted to Pinterest:

    I never heard of a swoon block either.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    They both are GORGEOUS! I made a king-size quilt out of that same line of fabric and it's the quilt that the LA'r screwed up so badly that I got more of the same line and I'm making another king-size.

    Well, it looks like we are all swooning over the "Swoon Block". Lovely and the Pintrest site has so many variations. You can really make quite an impact with the "Swoon". Thanks for the block idea and the fun project for a guild to share their skills.

    I like the 1st block better. The white makes the green pop. Yes, indeed, it is to swoon over! Excellent job!
