Swooning along

One of my quilty 2012 quilty goals was to make a Swoon quilt using my beloved Hideaway fabric. Thanks to Katy/I'm a Ginger Monkey, this will be happening sooner rather than later! The block is a little time-consuming, but we're just making one a week, so it's doable.

Swoon-away block #1
I knew the Swoon block was big, but I didn't realize just how big! I think it measures 24 inches.

Swoon-along block #1 close
I'm happy to be putting this fabric to use.

Are you Swooning along?

Holy cow, that is a big block!! Your block is so darned pretty, you picked the perfect fabrics and used them just right :) So tempted to join in the swoon-y fun!

What a great fabric choice! I've also been holding on to some Hideaway and waiting for the right pattern to come along.

I'm not (unfortunately) swooning along since I finished my swoon quilt a couple of months ago, but I will definitely be following along & looking! Still love this pattern!

I love the Hideaway fabric you're using! I'm swooning along too, so you should totally hold me accountable to make sure I get it done. =)

Well, I've joined the group, but that's as far as I've gotten. Your block looks great! Can't wait to see more!

Hooray!
Glad that you're swooning along, too.
I'm busy cutting up my fabric, and hope to make the first one tomorrow!

Love how it looks in Hideaway! I'm Swooning along, too - I finished all my 24" and 16" blocks, so the quilt-along is forcing me to piece the itty bitty 8" blocks to finish mine off.

Not Swooning along yet, but I should be. I've got the pattern and fabrics for it.

I really like the fussy cut center of your block.

And I love your scrappy tumbler quilt -- it's wonderful!
