It's not that I didn't like you, it's just that everyone and I mean everyone seemed to be going Ga-Ga. You are a lovely pattern and yet I didn't want to be just another lemming. I enjoyed watching from the sidelines, as scores of Swoon quilts popped up on Flickr and Pinterest last year. Yet, I resisted.
That was until I saw that Katy was hosting a Swoon-Along. You can find the details here on Flickr...maybe you resisted temptation too; but let's be honest Resistance is Futile! Hahahaha
So you want to know what my Swoon is going to look like, eh?
Well, it's gonna be scrappy and what I'm most excited about is what I chose for the background. I was out on Saturday looking for some grey fabric (never found it) when I came across a small pindot print. As soon as I saw it, I knew that was going to be the background for my Swoon quilt.
Of course, due to my excitement, I had to jump in and get started...ya, know (just to see what it would look like). After I got a third of the pattern done, I knew I hit gold and had to finish.
I give you Block #1.
Isn't it so freakin cute?
Now, I don't know how quickly I'm gonna finish the rest of the blocks; because I think the speed with which I've finished this 24" block was a fluke; but I'm sure gonna try.
Wish me luck...
