Still Swooning

Just a further update on my Swoon patchwork blocks, last time I wrote about them I had finished 5 out of 9, (you can see them by clicking here.)  Here are the final four ready to be sashed together... once I decide on the layout.  I really like this one with the red petals.
But then this one with the red as the star shape is quite striking to look at too.
I was so confident with this next one that I thought I could make these blindfolded, but alas, this is the one that needed the most unpicking.  I tried to get all the ducks up the same way, but it was not to be.  Most of the ducks in the bottom left and bottom right petals are facing all sorts of directions!

I have saved the best til last: pink combined with green is my favourite combination!

I have enjoyed cutting and sewing these immensely.  Such satisfying sewing, with a completed block fairly achievable after a couple of sessions. Next step will be to add some white borders and sew them all together.  I think I will do free-motion quilting on this at Beechwood, in Stirling again.
I have absolutely NO IDEA where I am going to keep this huge quilt when it's finished, but I do know that I will definitely be keeping it.


  1. These are all gorgeous, I love the top one! A x

  2. Lovely work. The red and turquoise is a great combination that I'm definitely going to use as a change from my usual red and navy!

  3. This is going to be a stunner.

  4. These are fab, it is going to be such a beauty!

  5. All those blocks are really lovely. Looking forward to seeing the finished version :)

  6. They are stunning Nessa, I love Thimbleblossoms' patterns and these Country Girl fabrics look so sweet in these large blocks!

  7. I love quilt alongs. Yours are so pretty. Love the colors. Enticing me to do another.

    1. Thanks so much! It really is a very satisfying block to make!
