Swoon Block 2

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Swoon Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? Well, I am still working out the math on this one. I wanted to replace her center of her block with a stack and this one is not perfect, but I know the measurements I want to use next time. The finished size of this block came out the same as the original, so we are okay there. My finished block size is 25". I am delighted with the colors and the stack in the center. I am making notes in the margins of my pattern so that I can replicate my blocks in the future should I desire to make another. I am cutting my pieces from strips rather than from a fat quarter. And the stacks require extra fabric allowance. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Well, if you just want to have fun and you have basic skills, I would make the original block in the pattern. If you are an advanced quilter and want to challenge yourself, well, the sky is the limit I guess!

Bonnie Wilson asked:
This is amazing and so beautiful. I love the Swoon pattern! I didn't realize the center was a stack and whack until I read your description. I love how the star points in the center have an optical illusion like the fabric is turning over. If this was on sale, I would totally buy it!
Applekrisp answered:
thank you Bonnie, the stacks make this block fun for me, I too love the effects you can get rom a stack.
