InstructionsI am taking the 12 inch center block of the Swoon quilt and substituting a 12 inch Stacked Lemoyne Star
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Traditional, Classic, Romantic
What was your inspiration?
I love the Swoon Quilt, but it is very simplistic for my taste...so I decided to take the 12 inch center of the 9 quilt blocks in the Swoon Quilt and change them out for Stacked Lemoyne Stars. I am using Paula Nadelstern Fabric and each block is cut from the exact same fabric. Depending on where you put your template, you get a different effect.
What are you most proud of?
I think my bits are matching up pretty good, they aren't so off that if you were galloping by on a horse, as my friend says, you would notice the little discrepancies. They are just busy enough to keep your eye roaming.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is not a beginner project. Although the Swoon Quilt would be a suitable quilt for someone that is just past a beginner. You need to be able to sew HST units and flying geese, match seams and cut straight...if you can do those things, you can make a beautiful Swoon Quilt. I am just taking it a little farther (because my life is not chaotic enough...lol)
