Swoon Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Each block uses the same components but looks different due to the fabric placement. 2 blocks have strip inserts. I am most proud of the kalidoscopic effects. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun, if you are a beginner, this quilt is not beyond your abilities. I wouldn't recommend trying to do all the fussy cutting, just get a nice all over fabric, not a directional and your quilt top will come out lovely!

What you will need

Darns asked:
Ooooooooooohhh, WOW! You are lucky I don't know where you live! You'd have a terrible time getting my slobber out of your quilt! This looks even better than I anticipated. Be so proud of this!!
Applekrisp answered:
Darns, thank you! I am thinking about quilting it block by block and then sashing it...have to read a little more about the technique before I commit to it, but leaning that way.
