My Swoon Quilt

My Swoon quilt is finished. And I love it.

I’d seen so many Swoon quilts on Instagram that I finally had to join the crowd and make one for myself. The minute I saw Moda’s fabric line Le Pavot by Sandy Gervais I absolutely had to have it. I received a fat quarter bundle for Christmas 2018 and made the quilt in 2019, so I’ve actually have had it done for over a year now!

I dove right in after receiving the fabric, and as always, it takes a good chunk of time to cut pieces. With the use of my stripology ruler (below) I was able to get the background strips done fairly quick.

I think what drew me to the pattern (by Camille Roskelley) is the large blocks, and to date these are the largest blocks I’ve ever made. They measure 24″ and the entire quilt has only nine blocks altogether.

I’m a huge fan of peachy, coral colored fabrics so I chose this adorable tiny flowered print for the binding.

I also favor the color teal. These two fabrics made the most gorgeous flying geese…

For the quilting, I decided to go with a different motif than what I’d usually choose—bubbles or swirls or something on the petite side. To mix it up I chose a big design to compliment the big blocks, it’s called seaweed. I’m really happy with how it turned out.

Here it is finished.

The colors, pattern and quilting…all made for a lovely quilt. 🙂 And a new favorite.

  1. It is beautiful!! I’ve had that quilt on my list too! I’ll be referencing your beauty when I choose fabrics for mine. I don’t need the same colors exactly but the values & excellent contrast are worth noting. You did a marvelous job! the quilting is fantastic too! The texture looks amazing!


    1. Thank you so much for all the wonderful comments Juddaca! I hope you get around to making a Swoon quilt; I almost feel like everyone needs one. 🙂 Do you have a blog where I could follow along?


  2. Just gorgeous — love your fabric selection! I love the Swoon block also — I used Christmas colors to make one 24 inch block table topper and smaller version as a matching pillow for a friend. The Swoon is definitely a great skill builder block!


    1. Thank you Karla! I never thought of Christmas colors, that’s a nice idea. It’s funny that you mentioned the Swoon block as a ‘skill builder’…because it’s so big I thought it would be easy, but not so! It was quite a challenge, well worth it though. 😉
