swoon-ing

swoon blocks 1-4

Me and my swoon blocks spent some more quality time  this weekend, and I have to say I'm getting more and more addicted to working on this quilt the more blocks I make!  I am loving how the bright colors are coming together, and there is just something about when all the points line up just so, that brings me such satisfaction.

This might be my favorite block yet.  I just love how the colors work together, and its so bright and vibrant.  The orange is Central Park by Kate Spain for Moda, and the aqua is some It's a Hoot by Momo for Moda.

Block #4 sort of happened by accident.  I had meant for the grey/yellow Amy Butler Midwest Modern fabric to actually be a fat quarter of Heirloom that I received in the Twitter Secret Santa Swap from Nicole, but due to an unfortunate cutting incident (i.e. I didn't read the cutting instructions and miscut my fat quarter, d'oh), I had to improvise, so I subbed in the AB print.  I'm still happy with it, and I think it works well with the pinky/red Innocent Crush fabric, so no harm done, but lesson learned.  Read the instructions! 

These blocks seem to be my go to weekend sewing project, so I'm sure I'll be having a swoon date soon, stay tuned!
