    If I'm correct, SWOON is the name of the quilt pattern by Thimble Blossoms, and the block is a variation of Dutch Rose. sallyjane, your blocks are beautiful!

    How heartbreaking. Is there anything you can do to salvage the quilt top?

    I agree, I also like the way I was able to fussy cut the center piece of fabric so it looks like I appliqued a circle, though I did not.

    I've never heard about the swoon block either, but it certainly is pretty and I printed off the free tutorial of the block that that was posted .

These patterns have a lot of pieces and HSTs. Beautiful blocks. Many pictures of Swoons online.
    I went to Thimbleberries and a search came up blank

    A quilt made out of your block would be enough to "swoon" over!!! I love your color combo...

    OH my I love that first block. The fabrics are so pretty.
    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.

    I've been under a rock too, I guess, cause I sure don't know what one is. Never knew it was ll the rage. Its very pretty. Please tell us what a swoon block really is.
    A finished quilt excites me!! Whether is it mine or yours!

    Really pretty!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
