Swoon quilt top: Now it's done.
We have throw-size quilts coming out the wazoo around here, but bed-size quilts? Not so much. One of my goals this year is to remedy that by making queen-size quilts for our bed and the guestroom. When I realized the Swoon quilt (which finishes at 80x80) was just a border shy of being a queen, I figured it was worth the extra effort.
And it really wasn't that much effort. I used a charm pack plus some extra 5-inch squares I cut from my leftover fabric to make a bright, scrappy border.
I do love this fabric, with it's charming village scenes...
and cuckoo clocks. It's Hideaway by Lauren and Jessi Jung.
I'm really happy to be finished with this quilt top! I started it more than a year ago when Katy had her Swoon-along. It's tempting to just slap a backing together to get this finished, but I'm going to jump aboard the Scrappy Swoon-Along to make a backing (and bust through some more of this fabric).
