  • Fabric: Laundry Basket Quilts, Over the Rainbow Batiks by Moda
  • Thread: Aurifil

Welp, I guess I was not immune to one of the most popular patterns online.  The “Swoon Bug” hit me too.  I had done a quick larger version for my granddaughter earlier last year and loved it so much that I wanted to do the 16 inch version for myself.

I would rate the pattern for intermediate quilters because there are so many different steps in each block, but it relatively easy.  If you can do half square triangles, you can do this quilt.

I haven’t gotten a good picture yet. The pictures just don’t do the colors justice.  I guess I need to take it outside so the lighting is better. The quilt colors are rich and warm and fit this pattern very well.

Swoon Quilt BlockThis past summer, I made 2 very colorful quilts for the other 2 grandkids.  I’m trying to find the pictures I took before I can post about them.

So, this quilt is for the littlest one of our family.  She has just graduated to a regular bed and loves bright colors. I chose the “Swoon” 24″ block pattern for hers.  It is really bright and cheery.
