Swoon Block

Project Description

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure your fat quarter before cutting. Mine was 18 inches across with the selvage. I cut the selvage off first and it left me 1/2 inch short. I probably would have been short either way since you can't hide 1/2 inch of selvage in a seem, but I would have used a different fat quarter. By the time I realized I was short I didn't want to do all that cutting all over again and just improvised with some scraps. I'm hoping it's not too obvious once the whole quilt comes together and is quilted.

What you will need

  • 2 Fandango (by Kate Spain) fat quarters plus Moda Bella Ivory yardage
