Swooning is fun :o) - Week 1

OK, I am guessing by now that most people would have seen that there is a


Here are my two blocks for Week 1

Block 1

Block 2

My pattern fabric is from an "Olivia's Holiday" Bundle by Tina Givens for Free Spirit

In Block one I added a Kona Cotton Solid  "Ash" and in Block 2, I added the Kona Cotton Solid "Curry"

These are fun blocks to make and are by far the largest blocks I have made to date coming in at 24" square - that makes the quilt a huge (for me) 80" square once all sashing etc is added.

It's not to late if you would like to join in.
Last time I looked they were up to 389 members which means there are a lot of swoon blocks appearing over in the Flickr Group if you need any inspiration.

Enjoy your weekend,
hugs, Sharon


  1. They are gorgeous.....

  2. They are both fabulous - love the colours of number two very much.

  3. Your blocks are looking gorgeous! I've bought the pattern, but am still undecided which fabrics to use. I'll probably go with random FQ's I have in my stash.

  4. G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S !! i soooo LOVE tina Givens the colors in the first block.

  5. These are beautiful, I just noticed yours on flickr. I sent a reply back to you the other day through ebay messages, hope you got it!
    I can't believe you've already made 2 !!! I'm still looking at my stash & trying to finish off my other quilt..slowly!

  6. The print/solid contrast is particularly nice! The quilt is sure to be beautiful!

  7. Your swoon blocks look fantastic. I will have to do this swooning thing sometime...after i have finish something else. LOL

  8. Beautiful blocks Sharon, your fabric choices are very effective!! I love the contrast of the print and plain fabric. Have a wonderful weekend.

  9. Both blocks are equally brilliant. Well done! :)
