Definition of "Swoon" . . .
Well, I guess I've fallen into a "swoon" - I love these swoon quilts (it's kind of like a cult!) . . . if you google swoon quilts, you'll see what I mean - they are everywhere. The pattern for swoon quilts is really very easy . . . HST, FG and squares . . . how easy is that! AND, the blocks are 24" - huge! Go to Thimble Blossoms to get the actual pattern. Talk about instant gratification - you can order the pattern on line and get the pdf right in your mailbox - and you can get swooning right now!
So, what does a swoon look like - here is Heather's. I love the fabrics and colour choices! I quilted it with a Baptist Fan panto - Glide Thread; Hobbs 80/20 batting . . .

I'm hooked - already have the fabric cut for my Swoon . . . I'll be piecing it this week when I go to Kimberley to spend some time with the grandkids (I hope they go to bed early!) Here's the beginning . . . .

I'll keep you posted on how my swoon is going at the Little House . . . it shouldn't be a problem to get it together this week.
